I have had a pair of female frogs since the tadpole stage for about 10
years. One of the frogs recently is just floating at the top of the tank. The
legs have lost weight and the skin is sloughing off. In reading the disease
section I see some of these symptoms. She does not have tremors. I read
the nematode disease thing, how would a frog get nematodes when it is in
a closed environment. The second female seems fine. Not sure what I
should do, I can remove the frog to a seperate aquarium. Should I treat the
water, euthanize the frog, or something else.

I would really appreciate some help, don't really want her to suffer, but
really do not know how to help either.

Thanks.
