New Member [African Dwarf Frog Help!!!]
I have a female African Dwarf Frog. This past Saturday she came down with a case of Heat Related Muscle Spasm Syndrome (from having the overhead light on too long) and her swimming around frantically (which she normally does when she's happy) the heat just caused her to spasm. We thought she was a goner, but she survived.
Since then she's been fine (eyes are clear color is fine) but she keeps having these spells where here legs spasm and I just don't know what to do. We had her in a 1 gallon tank the PH is 7.2 as directed and the temp has been between 76 and 78 degrees. We had to move her out of the tank and into a small container, every time we put her back into the regular tank she swims around for a minute full of excitement and then she spasms again. In the smaller container she is fine (I guess because she can't swim around freely) but thats not a life for her. Does anyone know about this illness? Is there a cure? I don't want her to suffer, this is just so hard to watch. I don't know what to do.
