    Default Marks on Albino ACF / nematodes in tank

    Hi there!
    I have two young ACFs alone in a ten gallon tank.
    One ACF has developed these (pictured) markings on his back. His behavior has not changed and his appetite is the same, but I still wanted to check here and ask if this is some disease or bacteria.
    The tank is kept clean and is filtered, but recently I had a bit of a nematode problem. Could they have affected my frog?
    Thanks everyone! Hope I included enough information.

    In my opinion, the markings are just the frog's natural, inherited pigmentation showing through. There are many variations in markings, with some examples illustrated here: http://aquaticfrogs.tripod.com/id5.html. Also, a Nematode infection would noticeably affect the frog's behaviour and be accompanied by strands of skin hanging from the frog. I doubt that you have anything to worry about.

    What if the nematodes have burrowed under the ACF skin and that is the blotches your seeing. I'm not a vet but I would be worried about that. My chameleon had nematodes from eating outside bugs and had them under her skin the vet gave her baytrail if I remember right. Took her a long time to recover.
