not sure if this is the right spot or not but i have recently acquired an African clawed frog and the poor thing has what i believe to be bloat.
now i looked it up and i am certain that the frog is not well it looks like a balloon with eyes. the previous owner had it in a small (3 gallon) tank with no filtration and did not even dechlorinate the water (kind of surprised me as they seem very knowledgeable regarding fish and many other animals. so this is what we have done to this moment.
1st took an established 10gallon tank and set it up for her (more space and better temp regulation)
2nd made sure that the clean water was treated properly
3rd began to treat with melofex (spelling may be wrong)
as of day two of the treatment the frog is way more active and appears to be getting a little smaller so i think we are on the right path. i guess i am asking if there is any more we can do or if we should just continue with the origonal plan (treat for 7 days then 50% W/C then just maintain the tank as we know it should be)... any advice would be appreciated thank you all....
