African Dwarf Frog help

Hello! I'm new. My name is Michelle I live in Portland, OR with a black lab/border collie mix, a pomeranian mix, a kitty, and now three dwarf froggies!

So I have recently bought the three ADF's and have them living in a seven gallon tank with a filter. All three looked great and were eating great yesterday and this morning for that matter. When I got home from work though, my biggest (and most favorite) frog has something that looks like mold coming from his right eye, and it looks like it's spreading to his left eye. I quarantined him so he can't spread whatever is happening to him. He's still acting normal, but it looks like he's having issues seeing. It's really disheartening.

Do you guys have any ideas what's going on with him?

Is there any way for you to get a picture? It sounds like an infection of some sort.

Sadly, many African Dwarf Frogs in petstores are unhealthy to begin with.

What color is the "mold"?

No matter what kind of infection it is using some aquarium salt often helps .

Can't get a picture, I'll try to discribe it better though.
It's white and looks almost like sleep boogers, when he's above water though, it doesn't look like anything's there -- so I can only see it when he's underwater.

I'll definitely pick up some aquarium salt. Thanks for the advice!
