You *might* want to consider cutting down her feedings to every other day, lol! ADF are cool to go a day or two in between meals once they've reached adulthood (about 9 months old). Fred looks more like what I'm used to seeing!!! Keep practicing with that camera, ADF can be IMPOSSIBLE to catch. I swear, mine pause JUST long enough for me to focus, then take off as I press the shutter. Brats! I *think* you may have gotten a picture of your cory in the back-round tho! :)
Could it be that she's carrying a lot of eggs ? She's in a community tank and I try to parcel out the food so that everybody gets their share. She does tend to push the corys away from their pellets and have a go at them. Maybe a tiny treadmill would help.

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!

LOL! No. . . she won't eat him :) Females DO seem to be more aggressive and greedy, though. I've seen my female accidentally chomp on the male and shake him around for a second before figuring out that he wasn't food. No harm was done, and they live together very happily as a general rule, they're a mating pair *shrug* Frogs are weird! The size difference between the male and female looks about right, though your female is bigger than mine is :) They're so cute!

That was a while ago and I never saw any eggs or babies. There are fish in the tank with them so they must've eaten them. Her old mate disappeared. I haven't seen the new male huggin her yet. They kind of nip at each other whenever they're close together. They're both doing well though.
