Hi, I'm new here, and I'm a little desperate for some answers about my fire-bellied toad.
Background: It was a rescue, nearly dead when we got it, had been starved and kept in a 55 gallon tank with 6 turtle in about 5 inches of muddy water. We've had it for about 2 months now, and it barely eats anything and has been spending most if its time hiding under a leaf in the corner.
Recent events: Bought 2 more FBTs and the original perked up considerably and started eating like crazy. I thought everything was great. I was so happy to finally see her eat something! Oh, and I think she's a girl, and one of the new ones is a boy.
Currently: I siphon out between 50% and 75% of the water every 2 or 3 days, but last night I noticed everything in the tank was slimey, and one of the new toads has slime literally dripping off her.
Questions: What is this slime, how bad is it for my toads, and how do I get rid of it?
Someone please answer and help me out. I can't find anything on the net about this.
