    Default albino hybrid? and eye question

    I'm debating on getting 3 young frogs and their setup, mostly to "rescue" them from their bad setup. The owner insists the setup isn't a problem and the frogs have been living this way for a couple of weeks.

    First off, they are TOGETHER in a round Kritter Keeper setup with a water bowl surrounded by decent-sized small rocks (such as river rock), but on long-fibered spagnum moss. No heat, kept at room temperature. The owner says they eat well and don't bother each other.

    Both albinos appear to have reduced side patterns such as found on the "green apple" hybrids. Could these be hybrids? Also the green one has a cloudy eye. The owner said it had been that way for a few days at least. When she first got it it she said it had kind of a lopsided look as if leaning to one side. All three were together at the pet store and purchased together. What could be wrong with the green one? Deficiency? Infection? or maybe a genetic issue?

    The pictures above were taken by me when I went to see them. The frogs do look healthy except for the green one's eye and all eagerly ate worm pieces while I was there. The green one seems to be a nice light green. All are around 1 1/2 inches.

    Any comments / advice would be appreciated.

    Melaflix will fix the cloudy eye. You can find it in petco or petsmart in their fish section.

    On the albinos it is normal for them to have no patterns on the side. They aren't hybrids.

    Not changing tbe water or moss enough can cause cloudy eye. Plus all are suseptable to catching the infection since they're. Housed together.

    What is the dosage for frogs, and how do I use it (in a bath, or otherwise)?

    Thank you.

    You can keep them in a quarter inch of water for about 20 min. Put a Drop of the liquid on the infected eye and then one more drop in the water. Do that for about three days.

    Also keep him on a dry substrate and give a water bowl

    Thanks for the info. The owner said they are all spoken for but I passed the info along on treating them. Hopefully they will get good knowledgeable homes.
