I was looking in my little 8 gal tank earlier and realised one of my three ADFs had got his front left foot stuck in a gap behind the filter. I thought he was dead at first but then he moved. I immediately turned it off and while I was trying to take the top off the filter to free him, he panicked and managed to get free himself but his foot is all bloody and a bit mashed up :( poor little thing. My male betta (the only other thing in the tank with the three frogs) started going after him cos of the blood, as he was sat on the gravel looking pretty dazed, so I caught him and put him in a plastic floating breeding box with some java moss to hide in and some frozen brine shrimp to eat. Should I add melafix?? I don't know whether this can be used on frogs or if it's harmful?
The filter is going in the bin btw, it's already eaten a guppy and two neons in the past :( I thought I'd sorted it out but I'm not risking any more accidents! So the tank is without filter for now until I get a safe sponge filter.
