I always felt he was skinny but I feed him 6-7 blood worms every other day. He is in a tank with fish right now and has always been but I hand feed him those blood worms. Maybe I need to try and feed him other things as wellbitseriously said:I'm uncertain as to sex, but that froggie needs a sammich in a serious way. It's not showing any outwards sign of disease, but it's seriously skinny. Feed lots of protein and fat. Frozen bloodworms (easy), raw shrimp chopped super fine, mysis shrimp, brine shrimp, beef heart (or so i hear), are all good options.
Is it in a tank with fish?
Do you hand feed?
He may get a little plump but nothin crazy. He has eaten the same way for months. I do randomly throw in some flakes for the fish or pellets but he rarely gets any of those.FishMommer said:Taking a second look, from the top side he doesn't look as bad as the under side. 6-7 worms every other sounds like a good meal? Does he get extra plump on those days? When ours gets a bigger belly, I worry and cut back the amount. Still working on getting it right. I hate having him look like he had Thanksgiving dinner and he is struggling.
Ok gotcha. Thanks for that. I’ll show you my male. I took a couple better pics of him. I’ve had him for months. I’m working on getting a little more weight on him.Kjeldsen said:Hard to tell but it looks healthy! Usually they're too young at the store to sex, but after a couple months the males will have those lighter underarm bumps and the females will grow plump. Males "arms" tend to get a little bigger.as well, which helps him in his job of hanging on for hours piggyback and fertilizing her eggs. She will have what looks like a very short tail, that's where the eggs come out.
Females have longer tails and a generally larger but males can be distinguised by a white armpit glandKameron said:
