My african dwarf frog is definitely sick. He is floating on the top and when I touch him he barely moves. There is no sign of illness other than the fact that he is lethargic and won't eat. I'm thinking it is a bacterial infection. What do I do?!

Also, I just flipped him over and he has red veins running through his leg and his underbelly. :( I think he has some sort of internal bacterial infection. What can I do to treat him? Is there any type of medicine I can quarantine him with? What should I do with my other ADF and my other fish? Is the aquarium infected now?

I did some research and foubd that to treat bacterial infections you do a large water change and add a little salt. I have cories in my tank though. What do I do?

Bettababy just said in my thread that adding salt would burn the frog's skin and slowly kill them so I'm going to assume you shouldn't really add salt at all. If you have more frogs maybe seperate it and do frequent water changes in it's little tank or w/e it is to keep it clean. Clean water can work wonders to heal illnesses I know. But that's the best advice I can give. Others might know better solutions.
