 Froggy dead...:( Why?

So I will start off saying when I first got my loves (ADFs), one was already sick and I knew he wouldn’t last too long but he was just so adorable. He pulled through for awhile and died probably about a month and a half after I had him. So he made it quite far. My other one was all alone but all I had left and I came to college with him. he was alone for some time and he was doing well. I did all the regular procedures when cleaning out his tank, but I noticed the tank was getting cloudy and pretty bad really quick. like within two days quick. so i got one of those suker fish.... well i have had them both together for about a month and last night i cleaned the tank like i always did and they seemed so well until this morning i saw my frog dead on his hind legs at the bottom of the tank. just lifelies :( what could have caused this? do you think its the sucker fish that did this? Because he has gotten quite large and maybe when I am not looking or not around he picked on poor Yanni (my ADF).... I dont know and I want to know what happened to him!!!! But as I wait for replies I must get a new little guy... it will be hard to replace Yanni...

There are many things that could have killed your frog.

For starters, it or the cleaner fish could have had parasites that infected the frog and killed it.

Another possibility is that your tank overheated. My little brother had a couple of ACFs and a few fish in a tank before when the water got too warm. The frogs both died but the fish survived.

Or it could just be stress from the new fish.

There are many other possibilities, but I’d say those are most likely. Sorry to hear about your losses. :/
