 Help My Fire Bellies!!

Help me please I have a 35 gallon aquarium and this is where I house my fire bellies, I lost one a couple of weeks ago with no outward appearance, I immediately took everyone else out and cleaned the entire cage I even boiled the rocks to kill any bacteria that cold have caused this. Then they all seemed fine. Yesterday when I fed them I noticed that one was sitting with his legs stretched out as they sometimes do in the water but he was almost in the land part of the slope, I didn’t see him specifically eat but he looked ok other than that. Then this morning he looked dead dried out looking just s the other one did. I have worked n the pet industry and keep a variety of animals healthy and this has me baffled. As I said there has been no outward apperances of sickness, just fine and then dried up and dead looking..(dead) Please help me I don’t want to lose any more frogs.. I don’t understand what is wrong!!

I’m a lizard and snake owner so I asked my cousin who has diffrent colored poison dart frogs and he said to seperate them because one was probably sick and spreaded it to the others.

Definitely quarantine the seemingly sick one if you can! I just did a little research on this, and somebody suggested checking the water quality. Do you use a filter? Perhaps having one would help. There was a different situation in which somebody revived a fire bellied toad by soaking them in water and using an aerator to oxygenate the water. I have no clue if that would even help. I have a couple of fire bellied toads, but I only got them a week ago and have had minimal problems. Sorry that I couldn’t help more, good luck!
