I'm a new frogkeeper, so I can't add much to this conversation, but I wanted to say I'm sorry you're going through this, and was wondering how things are getting on over there? Do you still have one frog? Is he well? Have you replaced the others yet? From what I've read, (and I could be wrong, as I said I'm new at this!) You probably shouldn't have 4 frogs in a 5 gallon. If the levels weren't high to cause harm, then this doesn't really apply to your current concern, but I DID want to pass that on, so you can take it into account before replacing your others. If you already have done so, you might want to consider purchasing a second 5 gallon to house the other pair. And as for your singleton, I have only one ADF, and he's really happy on his own! My human need for companionship makes me want to buy him a 'friend,' but your frog is probably perfectly content 'stretching out' with his 5 gal to himself! You mentioned fish, I haven't done this personally, but see that MANY people house a single ADF with a betta fish with success. So if you want a buddy, but are leery of purchasing another frog, you may want to do some research on this combo.
Anyway, I hope all is well! It can be very difficult to find information on these little guys, and it's a pity... they're such sweet little creatures!

YES! Read the link in her signature! This lady knows a LOT about froggies, and is very patient and gives good advice. I've been pestering her . . .
