Say that several experts on a betta fish forum said so? Point out the differences it has in its ventral fins and its head from females. Females have a straight headm males have a slope.

Hey, peeps. I seriously need some help. I noticed really weird stuff wrong with one of our two common American toads, so I separated them immediately.. Our new addition which we have only had for about a month is acting weirdly. When I walked by, I noticed her mouth was hanging open. She kept scratching at her face. Now, she's yawning a lot. Her legs seem to have gotten paler, and when I first went to her she had this weird gooey stuff on her arms. I don't know if she scratched it from her face and it came from her mouth or not. I found one sight that briefly mentions "Spring disease" and it sounds like that. She has also been laying in the water almost constantly the past few days, and I did not know that was also a sign of illness until just now, or I would have separated them sooner. I'm asking if any of you know anything about this, or could help me find a site with better info on toad diseases or Spring disease specifically. Thank you

You will always be my best friend, .

A few new pairs. Two of them are a gift from a local breeder. They also gave me a bunch of breeding supplies

Oh poor toads! All I know is herptiles are hard to heal .:(
All I can find is that it's an incurable bacterial infection..

I need to be mostly sure of what's wrong.. :( The other toad isn't yawning. I really hope he doesn't have whatever it is too. I cleaned the water dish and hiding spot and put him in a newly cleaned tank with new substrate.

You will always be my best friend, .

Also, is the white gooey stuff anything like the poison in their skin? Or is it something different?
