    any idea how they get it, we had gotten 1 frog before from petco (the place they all came from) and he had fuzzy stuff on his foot. they keep them in a tank with angel fish, does that matter?

    An angelfish may have bitten it and it got infected. Fungus comes from microscopic spores in the air and in the water.

    actually chytrid doesn't show up as a fuzzy fungus. It's a different type of fungus. lol.
