Hey guys, it's me again. :P I'm a bit high strung, if you can't tell, when it comes to taking care of my pets.

The African Dwarf Frog (latin name above) that I bought approx. two weeks ago looks like his skin is coming off in a couple strings off of his stomach and nose. Those strands have been there for most of this afternoon. I'v heard that tattered shedding is a common symptom of Chytrid fungus infection. He's not tattered all over yet, but I REALLY don't want to lose any frogs, and they say you have to catch it early.

I've also heard that lamisil is a good "cure" for Chytrid. However, I have no idea what that is, other than it comes in spray form?

Where would I get Lamisil? How can I make sure my lil frogs don't have chytrid, and what measures of prevention can I take to treat it before visible signs show (when it's best treated?) if they already do?

Also, someone needs to post more photos of ADFs with Chytrid online, because it's hard to tell what tattered shedding is supposed to look like without a picture. :|
