    Myself prefer to use treated dechlorinated tap (use Seachem Prime) than a "Spring Water" bottle with unknown origin or aggressive post collection processing.

    Recommend bring the temp up to 85F during the day with around a 10F drop at night. Ventilation is more important than humidity in Whites and will do OK with around 65%.

    Other than that you can continue to observe frog for any other signs of problem and maybe get a fecal sample and have a Herp/Amphib trained vet conduct a fecal test. Good luck !
    Remember to take care of the enclosure and it will take care of your frog !​

    My female pops out once in awhile during the day, then settles back down on a branch and waits for the viv light to go out at 6.
