Hi all,
Im new here but I made an account to get some clarity on whats going on with my ADF. Suddenly she is bloated, and I cant tell if its eggs or if she has dropsy. I do have a male in the aquarium that has been singing and trying to mate for a couple days now (with both the bloated frog and the other female I have). However, when he tries to mate, they both stay still and he lets go. They are in a 10 gallon planted aquarium and the water parameters are normal. I know dropsy is not cureable so Im really hoping its eggs :( Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

I got nothin I hope someone with more info comes but from the light I see some circles that may be eggs through her skin. Hope I’m right and it’s not dropsy!

Hi and welcome to the forum :)

Is the frog still eating well?
If yes, then it's unlikely to be dropsy, which causes inflammation in the abdomen and most animals stop eating if they get it.
