Ok, we'll try that too. And I totally get what you mean about rescuing. It can get really overwhelming dealing with sickness and death all the time.

Kindness and respect should be shown to all animals, no matter if they are furry, scaly, big, or small. Be a hero to the animals and GO VEGAN!

I found a research paper from the University of Colorado that found that crayfish carry the chytrid fungus for up to 12 weeks in their digestive tract, and that during this time they can infect frogs. However, mosquitofish (whatever that is) do not. I don't know if that helps me in my quest to answer if ghosties carry it, but I guess it's warning enough that I don't think I'll risk it.

Mosquito Fish They're a livebearer, similar to guppies

Interesting. Well, just so you know... you can put them in with your ADF without fear of killer fungus. I'm really bummed about the ghost shrimp, because I could really use their cleaning skills. Maybe, I'll see if any of the other LFS in town keep them away from amphibians.

the only downside is if you go to most shops, if they have those big rows of tanks, everything in them is connected via filtration. So, if their frogs are in even the same rack of tanks, I'd avoid it.

The store we prefer to shop at has the frogs in a pair of kritter keepers, no shrimp (just assassin snails and nerites), and the rest of their stock is mostly a set of stairs away.
