painted mantella problems...

I am not sure about my two painted mantellas. When I got them (wild caught) they had bright yellow/green patches. Now the patches are starting to turn black. Why is this happening? Their legs hardly have any orange on them either, but they looked like that when I got them. One of them is about normal size and one is VERY VERY fat.

Also, They are extremely shy. The thinner one, in fact, is probably a female judging by how fat she was when I got her...but now, she hides all the time and is starving herself because of it. I put them back in a quarantine tank again today to get her to eat. My two blushing mantellas are out all the time. If anyone has painteds, what kind of setup do you have them in?
