TREADMILL FTW! And if THAT works out? You really need to get me some video!!!
It could be. My female definitely got super round when she was filled with roe. I got worried about her, and fasted her for two days, and on the third day she mated with the male, so. . . whoops! It is a definite possibility, for sure - just keep a close eye on her. It can be really difficult to help a frog with bloat/dropsy. I've been finding that the female frogs are FAR more pushy when it comes to taking their fair share of the food than the males are. . . I'm not sure if it's a 'rule' but it's what I've noticed in my tank, and also through reports from other ADF keepers on this forum. Females ARE bigger and rounder than the males are, anyway, so that's to be expected!
Keep us posted! It'd be really cool if you ended up with a mated pair! I really want to try raising tadpoles at some point. Here is a link to our ADF thread
, if you want to stop by! We babble about our frogs constantly, lol! Love to have a new froggy friend come and play!
