    Sorry if this isn't "fish" related but I consider them to be fish since they're aquatic... but I just lost my other ADF that I first got when I got into this hobby. She was probably about a year and a half old, but she died of "dropsy" I believe, just like the other one did previously. Just wondering, how common is this disease in the aquatic frog trade? Does anyone know? I never overfed my frogs, always kept them clean nice water, even provided them with hiding places... not sure what I did wrong here.

    Ive never had/heard of them die of dropsy. I have had them escape, starve, or overheat. Sorry for your losses. :(

    Here is a frog with dropsy I nabbed from the net. Did they look like this?

    I'm reading overcrowding, poor diet, not enough variety in their diet or poor water conditions cause this. Could be a bacterial problem that both of them had?
