Help with very skinny frog

one of my frogs is getting very skinny it seems to eat well but wont gain any weight. my other two look great what the possibilities and will a normal vet do or will this require a specialist. i really don't want him to die please help.

Is the frog in a group? If so, I would definitely separate it. It might be "bullied" by another frog. Separate it, and feed it daily. If it doesn't put weight on in the next few days, contact Rich Frye.

Hey Steve ,
You can contact my brother through the website.
I would advise a fecal, at the least.
Good luck.


Darts with parasites are analogous to mixed tanks, there are no known benefits to the frogs with either.

If tone is more important to you than content, you are at the wrong place.

My new email address is: and new phone number is 773 577 3476

i agree with the above posts. i would separate him ASAP. he will have less stress and have better chances of getting better. good luck!

1.1.1 Hawaiian Auratus (reticulated), 1.2.2 Leucomelas, 3.2.1 Cobalt Tincs, 1.0.0 Kauluha & Creme / Camo Auratus, 2.0.1 Yelloback Tincs, 0.0.4 Azureus, 1.1.0 Spotted Auratus

will do and as soon as i can get some stool from him i will get in touch with your brother rich

Are all your other frogs ok? If it is the only frog that is skinny then I wonder how likely it is that it would have a parasite and the other frogs would be spared. How do you know he gets enough to eat?


my other frogs look great and i watch him eat every day to make sure he dose not get bullied and always gets his share.

Is he more active then the other frogs?
