I got a couple African dwarf frogs yesterday and added them to my 5 gallon cycled tank with a filter and heater, acclimated them, and the water tested perfect. They were active initially then I noticed one was laying still for a while. The other slowed down and eventually laid still too and they haven't moved at all since, one was on its back so I flipped it over and it didn't react to me touching it. They've been like this for around 12 hours now. Are they dead?? I don't know if the move was maybe too stressful for them? It's just weird because the water is still testing perfect and the temp of the tank is at 25°C

They can go into a state of imagination but usually its from weird circumstances.

Shock usually but its short term. Fear of predation is another but again its short term.
Lol. I quoted you as saying state of imagination. It somehow made me think of a tripping frog. Kind of a reverse effect of some frogs.

Inanimation. Ha not sure why it changed to imagination. I have had them go 12 hours like this. Not really sure why.
