    Unhappy My Fire belly is super sick help?

    So about 2 weeks ago my 2 toads and i moved about 400 miles to a new town so I could go to college in the fall well one of the two toads has been acting weird since the move she swims upside down and to me it looks like she is confused as to where she is going and what's going on about her. She wont eat and is barely moving and usually ends up on her back then just lays there. This morning I noticed a white slim coming off her and gently cleaned it off.
    Both frogs are in a 10g tank
    half land half water with a filter and heater
    I have been cleaning the tank once a week and I use a water treatment for toads that I got from petco
    she used to eat 4-6 worms once every 3 days and used to love being held she would crawl into my hand without a problem. I always wash my hands before and after handling.
    haven't noticed any issues with male he eats and acts normal.
    please help

    Hello and welcome to FF! Sorry about your frog being sick. Does frog looks bloated or any different than before trip? Can you also please describe how frogs where kept etc. during trip?

    Even though it appears the problem might be related to trip and how the frogs were maintained during it; would appreciate if you answer these questions to better understand situation.

    “Trouble in the Frog Enclosure”
    The following information will be very helpful if provided when requesting assistance with either your frog or enclosure. To help with your questions, please utilize the below list and post the information in the proper forum area to get advice from FF members that keep the same frog. This will allow for little confusion and a faster more informed response.

    1. Tank Size and volume of water in it (full, 1/2 filled, etc.)?

    2. Number of inhabitants including all frogs and any fish?

    3. Water source and any conditioner treatments?

    4. Water Temperature and how is it heated (if so)?

    5. Water chemistry levels: pH; Ammonia (NH3); Nitrites (NO2); Nitrates (NO3)? Note that if you do not have test kits, most aquariums/pet shops will do complimentary tests if you take a clean water sample.

    6. Describe any filter system including model and media?[/COLOR]

    7. Substrate type?

    8. Tank set-up (plants (live or artificial), driftwood, hide outs and other decor? - How were things prepared prior to being put into the tank?

    9. Main frog staple food and any treats? How often you feed?

    10. CA, vitamins, and any other additives used (how often)?

    11. Lighting set-up and hours it's used?

    12. When is the last time frog ate?

    13. Have you found poop lately?

    14. A picture would be helpful including frog and tank (any including cell phone pics are fine).

    15. How old is the frog?

    16. How long have you owned him/her?

    17. Is the frog wild caught or captive bred?

    18. Any medications in the water (treatment dosis and for how long)?

    19. Any salt in water (how much)?

    20. Is the tank kept in a high or low traffic area?

    21. Describe tank maintenance to include water changes, cleaning, media changes, etc.).
