No one said did you test the water!
Where you get your water for changing?

Is ammonia, nitirites, chlorine?

Do a 50% water change if you have good change water.

Thanks for the advice!

There is only one small problem! I'm not home right now, I had to leave for a few days. Before leaving I bought some medicine and sollutions anti ammonia and nitritis and used them. I hope when I return no more fish are dead. When I return home I will buy a tester to check out the water composition (when I bought de medicinine it was sold out)

My frog is still very small, it couldn't have possibly eaten the big angel fish... I found him dead "in perfect shape" (only the eyes were a little blurry and the gills were swallowed...)
Before leaving, I also found one dead SAE... same conditions, but a little bit eaten by the other fish.

Thank you.

I'm seriously shocked. If he starts to get really big then you know he at least snacked on a few (even postmortem). I'd suggest him having his own tank anyways, he won't leave them alone forever (it's ridiculous how much they eat though I think they ate my pond snails so I don't mind that!!!)

Yay....it at least saves all your future fishies from being eaten :)

Getting some more fish and seeing what happens (after proper quarantine)?

Ummmmmm....tear down your tank, boil everything (ecept the rocks) and start all over again? Totally weird!

And seriously, I though it was the frog, I'm sorry
