i got two ADF's last saturday, i havent' gave them names yet so lets just say froggy A and froggy B.
Froggy A is eating fine and looks very fit and healthy, but froggy B is VERY difficult to feed and doesn't seem as healthy, the other day he had slime over him head and front arm's which seemed to make it really difficult to swim, i very carefully pulled it off him (which he seemed happy about, but he still didn't eat.
Is froggy B ill??
and do ADF's shed??
Thanks

Hi Sammy :-)

Yes, ADF's shed, so that's possibly all it was? I've never noticed any difference in attitude when my shed, though? Keep an eye on him and keep that water clean. That's the best advise I can give right now.

Hi, Sammy. Feeding that is fine, though you want to keep the bloodworms as a treat; a regular diet of bloodworms has been found to cause bloat in frogs. You can also feed HBH Frog and Tadpole Bites, turtle sticks, etc. Check out the dwarf frog pages at http://aquaticfrogs.tripod.com/index.html for a lot of good info.

Yes & Yes.

Your betta will take it upon himself to have a nip of any food you put in with him.

One died!! it was the the smaller one who wasn't eating
The other is much happier and both him and jeremy take the freeze dried food quite happily so there is a light at the end of the tunnel

Sorry Sammy,

Sometimes their sick when we buy them, just like some fish we buy are sick.

I've said this before, but I had to buy 6 ADF's before I ended up with my 4 healthy ones.

Sorry........
