    White bumps? Shedding? Fungus or . . . ?

    Hey all - I'm a new African dwarf frog owner. I have two in a planted tank with four guppies. They're eating bloodworms famously and doing great. However, I noticed a bump on the larger of my two in addition to some faded spots. No change in appetite or disposition. However, if it's something...
