Weird Little Frog

over the summer i was in the Catskill mountains of New York and happened to find an amazing little frog. he is an albino green frog. i took him in b.c i knew he would be eaten by a raccoon or something in no time due to his vibrant discoloration. about a week and half later i noticed all he did was sit around all day so i went back up and found him a normal colored friend just a little bigger then him. so far I've noticed problems that i'm guessing are to do with his genetics. he isn't growing as fast as the other guy and is almost half the size of him now, and his belly seems to be enlarged and it worries me. i thought it was bloat but when i searched i couldn't find anything on green frogs with bloat. now i think hes i'm feeding him too much, although i only feed him 1 "large" sized cricket every few days. the crickets aren't that big though. anyway his stomach does look fluidy to me. here is a picture

if you look you can see right through his skin ad see his intestines or something its like a faint white spaghetti looking thing.

nope i feed him crickets and i put little guppies in the water mainly for enrichment because they are harder to eat i assume but other than that nothing. i noticed he look bloated the first day i brought him home.
