My African clawed frog is swollen - PLEASE HELP!!!
I need some help with my little frog, Lola. I got her a couple of weeks ago to add to my 25 litre tank with 3 goldfish that I put in one week before. I used some 'bionitrivec' and 'aquatan' in the water before I started and the guy at the pet shop checked a sample of the water before I put anything in there and it was okay. I have a filter and gravel on the bottom and I did a water change this weekend. The guy at the shop told me to do water changes every two week, about 20% of the tank, and add the two types of drops after each change.
So, Lola was a bit freaked when she got in the tank but seemed to calm down and swam around and did her cool floating stuff. The shop told me to give her the flakes that I feed the goldfish with ('Tetra Goldfish/Animin') and I saw her eating some of it. She didn't seem so interested so I even put my hand in there (freshy washed) and she took some from me. Now, after two weeks, she's looking swollen, went really pale (almost transparent) and now she's looking darker on top and really white under her belly (since today). She's spent the last two days up at the surface and doesn't seem happy.
I'm worried that she's sick but don't know what the problem is and I'm also worried that the fish are bothering her - they peck around her and disturb her a bit.
Any help would be greatly appreciated - I feel terrible that I don't know what's wrong and can't help her!
I've attached some photos so you can see her and the tank.
