    Default ADF Loss of Apetite

    Hello. I have 2 ADF in a 5 gal Marineland Portrait Aquarium. I have live plants and my substrate is CaribSea Eco-complete. I did a fishless N-cycle on the tank and it has been established for about 3 weeks now. I have noticed that 1 of my ADFs is much skinnier than the other. I see my plump one (Permit) eating all the time but the other one I have not seen eat yet. I feed them freeze-dried bloodworms and some frog pellets. I took my skinny frog (Phoebe) out and put her in a small quarantine tank with a small heater. I watched her all day today while I worked and tried repeatedly feeding her but she never ate. Do you think she is sick or do I need to find a better food for her that will stimulate her appetite? She is active, has clear eyes, and scurries away when I come close. I attached 2 pics of Phoebe (skinny) and 1 pic of Permit (plump. Again Permit is quite happy and sings all the time. Any help would be appreciated!!!

    Try more appetizing food, such as live blackworms, or frozen brine shrimp.
