African dwarf frog death.

Analisemcg

So I fed my frogs this morning, both seemed normal and active. Then I left to hang out with a friend for a few hours and when I came back home she was dead. I tested the water and my results were decent, 0 ammonia, and the test strip colors are a bit off because I spilled water conditioner on the strip bottle a while back but I think it’s 10 nitrate and the nitrite is the worst but I think it’s .5 nitrite (did a 50% water change to combat that even if the reading is off). But when I pulled her out of the water I looked at her body and noticed that Her left side was very swollen and when I flipped her over it looked pinkish and veiny. Could this be a parasite? There’s another dwarf frog in the tank that seems fine but should I be worried about if she spread some disease? Or could it have been my parameters? (I got them both from petco about 2-3 weeks ago)

Hi, I'm so sorry about your frog :(
Any possibility they tussle a bit? Mine used to to grab each other sometimes when going after food. They don't have teeth but it's possible the pressure could injure her.

It might just be one of those things we never know.

Yeah unfortunately with ADF deaths and diseases it's extremely difficult to tell. I think the most common cause of death is usually digestive related. This seems like it could be but also could be what Lucy described

What do you feed them and how often?

I feed them frog pellets and frozen blood worms, usually once a day but I do skip some days if I’m at my dads house. Usually only 1-2 day skips though.

I have seen them nip at each other a few times and that could’ve been it. But her body was still in tact so I would’ve expected it to be worse but they also don’t have teeth so I don’t know :( thank you for helping

Id actually have to say to keep away from the Frog pellets since they dont have a clear ingredient composition and that they have been known to cause digestive issues (sometimes related to bloat). Frozen bloodworms are great but make sure you feed a small amount every other day or every two days
