 I need help for my fire belly

I’ve never had FBT’s so I’m not sure I’ll be much help, but I don’t want to leave you hanging, so I will give you what I know and hopefully someone else will come along.. Okay, From What I’ve read they are very active frogs and should not just be sitting still for hours a day. If she is eating that is a good sign. How big is their tank? and I would suggest bumping up their heating.. Try 80 and 75 in the water with 75% humidity.. You didn’t mention humidity.. so I’m not sure how high it is now, but it should be about 50. It maybe she’s just cold.. or try 75 and and 70 for water.. Do you ever mist them? what king of bedding do you use? Can you send a picture?
