    Hey guys, i have 3 african dwarf frogs. 2 males and 1 female. The female used to be very big and eats a lot. But these past few days, she stopped eating. She wont take nay food even if i wiggle it infront of her. i am worried sick. Can someone help me? ask me any questions if you like..... i have read that sudden lost of appetite might be caused by bacterial infection. if so, what should i do?:%3

    i used to have her in the 10 gallon tank. with 2 males and some other fishes. The males are ding pretty good. They are eating a lot and healthy looking. always moving. Now i placed her in a 1 gallon tank where i can observe her better. she hasnt surfaced yet she hasnt moved. She is not eating, she actually got thinner than wehn i first got her which was 3 months ago. I feed them, frozen bloodworms. There had been no trouble feeding her before but this week she started refusing the food. if shell eat, she only gets a few. But now, 2 days, she completely stopped eating. Its just worrying me.

    Loss of appetite can be a sign of a bacterial infection in African dwarf frogs. Unfortunately, I haven't found anyone able to supply a cure or treatment. Isolating the female from the other frogs would be a good idea but you already did that. Varying the diet and method of feeding, in case it's something other than an infection, might also help. I understand these frogs don't like to do much foraging.
