 My WTF is SICK!!! please HELP!!!

I have a male WTF that has been acting really weird for the past month. He used to be very active, climbing around hopping and being vibrant green but now he stays in his little coconut all the time unless i move him out of it but then he quickly scurries back. Hes always a muddy brown but for some reason when i take him out and put him on my house plants he turns green...but iv cleaned the tank out and put in new coco-fiber and cleaned all the fake plants. so i don’t know what could be the problem. He used to eat about 4-5 crickets every other day now I’m lucky if he eats 2...but even when he eats, i don’t see poop...i have another frog in with him, a female and shes very active and normal and i know its her fecal matter not his, cuz like i said he only sits in his coconut...what could be wrong with him! Which brings me to another question. My female WTF has a white bubbly thing on her hind leg, looks kinda like a blister, and i can move it side to side, like it can slide around under her skin..FREAKS ME OUT! idk what it is!!! PLEASE HELP!

Is it only because of color you think he’s sick?...

Whites turn a number of colors regularily and don’t stay bright green constantly...Some of course do but others don’t....

First there is no gurantee of coloration....The best thing to do here is add the color that you want using plants either live or silk etc so he will camoflauge to the colors...Insure you follow all the rules of replanting if using live plants and check for toxic issues etc.... Ask here on specific plants if your unsure..

In his cave its normal that he be darker..he will match his environment/surroundings...

Its not wise to be placing your frog on house plants..Most plants are toxic to your frog and contain fertilizers and sprays for insects etc......

You really need to get your female using mela fix and as both have been kept together I would treat both frogs... This means getting a sick tank set up or using the tank you have as a sick tank...

If your not sure on the sick tank issue or how to do it please ask...There is certain temps etc.. Its easier to control illness if frogs are kept in seperate tanks.. You need to know if he is passing waste and what exactly the issue is on eating like is it hunting or female hogging food etc..

i know that they turn colors but he is a constant brown, but when i take him out its like hes better or somthing.
btw my house plants iv wiped down often and replaced the dirt that it came with, with organic non-fertilized soil just for them. Potato (who i think is sick) he has changed in the past month, he stays in his coconut all day long, i can leave him alone for like 2 days and he wouldnt leave his coconut , which he never did, he was always active and looking lively on the fake plants. But the thing is that they are the same fake plants that he was around when i first got him 2 months ago so i dont see how it could be the plants. I just took out the eco-earth cause i think that might have something to do with it and just put paper towel in there for now to see if he looks better.
Also i feed them by hand so both of them get an equal amount i dont just throw them in the tank or else the female WILL eat them all. But when i try to hand feed him (like i always do) he will eat one, and maybe two and then he will hop on my leg and try to hide in the crevice of my leg. Also idk if maybe hes constipated but i havent seen a poop from him in a while. when i do my daily cleaning i only see one poop in there and i know its from Sammy (the female)
I can send a pic of whats on Sammys leg, i pushed on it today and the blister thing split into two and could still slide around.

well i really dont know anything about your female but i will email some friends and see if they have any ideas but about your other one and its color issue i think its probably doing wat the other fellow said his in his cave where its darker so he tries to blend in by being darker plus its cooler in there which makes him slower and might affect his hunting and appetite usually when you use less you take less food wat is your humitity and temp at. and when was the last time you did any serious cleaning to his area cause mine acts simuliar when i do alot to the area and it takes him about 1 to 2 weeks sometimes to adjust and sometimes they get darker

To post a pic, put your pictures on something like photo bucket and then all you do is copy and past it in your message.

If she is eating and going potty fine, I would just let her be. Keep an eye on her, but try not to handle her unless need be.
Did you put some type of gravel or drainage under your substrate?
Can you show us a pic of your tank?

ok ya i only handle her to feed her i hand feed them, thats how i noticed it though cuz i do inspections when i feed them to make sure nothing looks different but i did it again today and the white thing went down so maybe itll be gone somtime soon. my tank has eco earth in it and 2 fake plants and a water bowl but in the past week i took the eco earth out(it was a different brand than usual) and am now just using a paper towel and they seem to be doing fine, i never used the paper towel system but now that i am both frogs seem to be doing better, especial now that that bubble thing is going down. thanks for all that helped me!

I only see one pic so I hope thats all there is but it looks fine from the one I see...

I would let her be too for awhile and just keep an eye if anything like watery stools appear..

Insure your water is treated and changed daily.. Vital with new frogs in case its bacterial..

It could be just a stress factor from ’new’ and under stress their own internal parasite load can increase. Reduce the stress by only little handling etc and insure temps are up high and keep humdity low for a week or two say 40% to insure nothing can start if its stress related..

yes i was te only one i had found on her, i just found it weird that it could move..but it got smaller yesterday some how. i think the paper towel helped it must of been the eco earth irritating her or somthing cuz shes had it for a while and just yesterday it went down.
Thanks everyone for your help!

Kai:
I saw on another post on your handling your frog... It could of been some type of irritant...

So insure he is always on a clean surface that has just been wiped with clean water like your hands....

Just a suggestion if you want to place him down on a table or anything.. I always use/put a pce of papertowel when I take mine out if I need to put them anywhere.....

Hope he is ok now.. :)

hey!

omg, that "blister" sore thing on your frog’s leg looks exactly like mine, except its on his hindleg, not the back!
Mine started out with one bubbly looking blister then it started spreading, i’ve used the mela fix, but it didn’t work!
however, duke was behaving normal, eating fine, pooping, active, hopping around and hes always green.
i first detected the bubble blister thing in february.
you can see one of my posts on " Bumps on hindleg harmful?".
something like that.
Hoppy was helping me, i have to do the mela fix treatment again, but this time probably move him into a smaller sick tank...

hope your frogs better!
