Thanks for the quick response!

I talked with the resident assistant (RA) of my dormitory (because she is the one that gave me the frog), and she said that her frogs do that, as well... so it is normal, possibly?

On a good note, the frog is certainly not dead at all - and now that I have a bigger tub, it is swimming quite fast.

I will try giving it some shade (it definitely does not have any hiding places or anything in a tub with only water), thank you for the suggestion.

One other thing I was wondering about... I know that my frog is small... and this might sound weird... but for some reason, it does not seem to eat its little frog pellets unless they direct land on/in front of him/her after they sink from floating on the top. I know that might sound weird, but I am just wondering why s/he does not search around for food or bother scooping up food unless it hits him/her from floating down.

Also, do you have any general comments for the upkeep of an ACF? Especially of a small one (I believe it is just 1-2 months old). I am about to acquire an older (by "older," I mean a couple more months old) albino ACF, and I just want to make sure I am taking the best care of them that I possibly can.

Thanks again for the quick response! I was really worried.
