    What kind of water do you use? Bottled? Treated well or tap water? If it's distilled that can cause bloating.

    So sorry for your loss. From the looks of it, Froggy had edema. It's usually either caused by an internal infection or kidney failure. If it was the second, there's unfortunately nothing you could've done for it, and it looks like that may have been the case for Froggy. I hope you're comforted by the knowledge he is at peace now.

    Sorry for your loss (and also for missing where you wrote about the water the first time).
