    I'd say abscess as well, but it makes me wonder if another ADF, in the same tank, is also developing this as well.

    Have you noticed anything else in the tank or the animals themselves that you can tell us?

    I'd advise a vet visit myself, but I'm not at all knowledgeable about frogs.

    The frog shown keeps trying to rub the growth away with it's front legs. It may have difficulty surfacing and sinking, but it tends to hide lately. The other frog seems normal currently, except for the strange bumps appearing on the back and stomach. The stomach bump has a very noticeable red vein. Shes also molting at this time. The only other adf is a small male, and he seems fine. Both adf with problems are females.

    The one with the bump is still kicking, but I found the other had moved on this morning :-(
