So, I have a post about their care... now I need help. I ended up with an ADF on Friday night (it's a long story). She was in a bowl being QT'd and then I planned on putting her in with Neptune (who is super laid back). Then I decided to split my 10 g tank and put Neptune, 1 snail and the frog Beatrix on one side, and Marius and 1 snail on the other. At this point, I want to wait to expose Marius to a snail until I can be here to watch him all day to make sure he doesn't attack it.
Long story short. I split to 10 g and put the 4 mystery snails on one side (until I can move them around) and Beatrix the frog on the other. She had not eaten in her bowl, so I hoped it would encourage her to eat (more room, and more hiding places. This was late Saturday night, after I was positive the Instant Ocean Holdfast epoxy on the divider was dry. On Sunday, she still had not eaten and the bloodworms and frog pellets were just laying there (i put them on large white stones so they were easy to see). I thought maybe if I got her a buddy she might be more inclined to eat, so I went to PetSmart and got her a buddy. Normally, I would QT but Beatrix had come from the same tank earlier last week so I know if there's something in the tank, she already had it.
This morning, I found one of the frogs dead (don't know which one). I checked the parameters of the tank. Ammonia is fine, but nitrates and nitrites are just above safe (used a strip test for nitrates and nitrites and liquid for ammonia). I quickly did a 2 gallon water change. The other frog is hiding and it took me forever to find it. It's not really swimming around either, I watched for a good 30 minutes and there was no movement. I moved the plant it was hiding in slightly and just saw it move its leg. I have no idea what to do. I will say when I got to PetSmart a bunch of frogs were dead in the tank on Sunday. I think the one i got and another were the only two alive. I was a little concerned, but brushed it off that she had already been exposed to it if it was something. I've also been told by coworkers that ADF's die nonstop, and are really hard to keep alive. So, I suppose there could just be something in the tank. I know Ich was in that tank a few months ago. (the benefits of working there).
Any suggestions? I would love to try to save the one I still have.
