Initially when I saw the picture I was thinking about this:



No offense, sorry.

I hope your frog will go better. Did you found meds or aquarium salts ?

What's your aquarium tank size ? Also what filtration you got ?

I see on the net an ACF need a goldfish filtration x10... Also your frog look like gasping air at the surface, as if there was a lot of ammonia in the water...

Can you test the water for ammonia/nitrites ?
Ammonia and nitrites decrease poisonigly the ability for marine creatures to breath underwater...

Also, are you cleaning the filter bio media under tap (never do that lol)


From what I saw here http://aquaticfrogs.tripod.com/id1.html, " these frogs spend most of their time on the bottom of the tank"...

Why yours is always gasping air on top ?

The bioload is Incredingbly SOOO HEAVY. What's your water change schedule ?

I would absolutely take a water sample right before you do a waterchange, then bring it to the LFS, so they can test your water for ammonia/nitrites.

Also, on the pictures, your water look white cloudy, wich could be caused by a bacteria bloom, wich only occur when tank have cycle problems... You need to test theses params absolutely: ammonia and nitrites.

Also, what's your water temperature, do you use a heater ? This is a cold water frog... So you don't need one.

I would increase your filtration too. Aquatech 20/40 means it's made for a normal bioload 20 gallon tank. So I would increase to a filter that can hold much more filtration, like a fluval C4 instead... Remember, 20g tank can hold 2 goldfish only with a lot of filtration (40g filter like yours). Each frog you got is almost a goldfish x10 in term of bioload...


And you didn't awnser my last question, do you clean the filter bio media under the tap water ? Or change them often ?

You should go to AquaAdvisor and plug in the tank and the inhabitants and see what it says.
