Hi,

Your enclosure looks small. Your (problem) frog could have a number of possible things wrong with it, but one of the very first recommendations that I make, is to Separate any animal that has feeding or movement problems. Injuries and disease are possibilities, but both of them are compounded by stress caused by multiple other animals in a small area.

I would remove that frog and place it in an enclosure all by itself.

Second, I would place a large amount of plant clippings from the species 'Pothos' in both enclosures - the one with 2 frogs and the new enclosure with the 'problem' frog.

Here are some threads to read...please post more info and pics when you get a chance.
