i had a pair of dwarf frogs. they were doing fine with the other fish and the amount of salt in the water. until recently. i noticed first that the one frog wasnt eating his shedding skin. as far as i know they are supposed to eat it as it comes off and if there is a lot of dead skin, there could be a problem. then he had what just looked like a fat full belly (much like normal just after feeding). the belly never receeded.... then he began to float. he couldnt keep himself down on the bottom! eventually he died. 2 days later my other frog is showing strong symptoms like the first frog. i pulled his butt out of the water, put him in a seperate tank with fresh spring water, no salt and added a touch of malachite green, hoping to kill any parasites.. anyone have suggestions on what is causing this or what to do?

You can buy them in the market. Try to remove the shell and blanch them. I don't know if this may work but try to open their mouths so they can eat the peas.:)
