 REALLY WORRIED ABOUT MY AFRICAN DWARF FROG

im new to this site so will start by saying hello.

now on to my frog

i have had an african dwarf frog for around 3 weeks now and am starting to worry about him, the day i got him he broke his hind leg by getting it stuck in the filter, to avoid this happening again i moved him to my smaller fish tank and other than the fact he wasn’t using his leg all was fine.

over the last few weeks i have noticed he has become very lethargic doing nothing but sitting on top of the ornament or floating at the top of the tank and in the 3 weeks ive had him ive never seen him eat.

a few days ago i noticed an open sore on his broken leg which now has a yellowish greeny fuzz growing over it but cant decide if this is the wound healing or the start of a fungal infection? also the leg has turned very pale almost white.

today i removed him from the tank and put him in a bowl with some blood worm and still he wont eat.

i am very worried that he will die and am unsure what to do so any help would be greatly appreciated, so thanks in advance
