male african dwarf frog curse? i need help
I currently have 6 ADF in a 10 gallon tank with my dwarf puffer who is actually a nice puffer. (no, he does not EVER go after the frogs, i made sure of that) I have had them all for well over a year or longer except for my 1 male ADF. Now when i first started getting the frogs, i just happened to end up with all females. So i decided to get 1 male. For whatever reason, my males have always stopped coming out to eat and have died. I am on my fourth one. Sometimes they would be fine for weeks, others only days. The one i have now i have had for over 6 months, and he starting to not come out to eat. He just sits in the cave all day and i rarely see him. I hear him at night doing his mating call which makes me feel better, but i have not seen him eat in almost a week now which is very uncharacteristic. What is going on? This has only happened with my males. Is it just the curse of my males in my tank? I would be devestated to lose this guy, especially since i have had him for awhile now. There are absolutely no other issues with my other frogs. any suggestions?
