Hello...

I have four auratus in a 28g bowfront tank. Two of them have died and I would like to know if this is preventable in case my other two frogs start showing symptoms.

My two dead frogs kept getting skinnier and skinnier, until they were nothing but skin and bones and eventually died. The strange part is that they never became less active or fed any less. I would feed more and more in case they just weren't getting enough food. They would eat more and more, and while my other two frogs got fatter and fatter, these two other ones kept getting smaller and smaller. I don't get it. I can only think that they must either have some sort of internal parasites (they both came from the same breeder, though almost a year apart, though they died within the same month of time). I was also thinking that perhaps I am over supplementing the fruit flies. I use indoor miner-all and reptocal. One feeding minerall, the next reptocal. Every once in a while I won't supplement. But I usually do. The main reason I use the reptocal is because the minerall doesn't have any vitamin A...so I figure if I go back and forth all have all the bases covered.

Are these symptoms of d3 poisoning?

Any help or adivise in the right direction would help in case I notice the same symptoms in my other two frogs. Hopefully not!!!

Thanks in advance!!!

Fernando
