:what is your setup? temp especially. what kind of water do you use? hiding places? frog still eats? what substrate? the change of season is rough for wild frogs if they don't hibernate. the frog probably just active because he was upset that you woke him up during the day. redleg is a common ailment but having red legs is not a good indicator anyway. other symptoms happen first.
He lives in a ten gallon aquarium with UVB lighting. His light is on ten hours per day. He has a fountain which keeps humidity at 60-70 percent that is on only during the day. All water used in the in both his pond and fountain is spring water. Temperature is about 73-76 during the day and 70 at night. Substrate used is fir bark and he is often fed on a platform so he won't accidently consume any substrate(he has in the past but has managed to bring it back up). Brief history: he arrived in a flower arrangement from a florist. It was deterined he had been in a cooler for several days and was quite ill when I first found him. He recovered quickly and seemed to respond well in the environment I made for him, although i have never had a frog and still don't know if I'm doing things correctly. I've had him for about seven months nad he has always been quite lively up until a week ago. The vet said his color, eyes, and general appearance look great. Last night I did manage to coax him into eating a cricket. Do you think it could be the seasons?
Thanks for the reply
