Not your normal bloating...

I just purchased a baby albino pacman frog. The day I got him I kept him in the plastic container he was sold in with a little ecoearth and a few small crickets until I could set up the tank for him that night. When I went to place him in his new enclosure I noticed he was very bloated.

But this isn't the normal bloating I am seeing in the other pics on this forum. He looks like he has AIR inside his belly... or possibly water. He is already pretty transparent due to his albinoism, but the areas on each side of him are VERY transparent.

I now have him in a 5 1/2 gallon tank (he is only slightly bigger than a quarter and fits in this just fine) with "jungle bed" for a substrate (a fine coconut mulch sort of stuff).

I am very scared he might die from this. I am not sure what caused it (I am pretty sure it is not red-leg) or why it came about so rapidly. It was not there when I bought him that morning. Also, I have yet to see him actually eat anything. Could he have already been sick when I got him?

Any help would be greatly appreciated. I've only had him a day for christ's sake.

Thanks!!!
