    Frogspawn DOA?

    Frogspawn arrived with a lot of expelled mucous like substance in the bag and an absolutely horrendous smell. I acclimated, dipped, and placed in my tank anyway. It is still expelling long stringy mucus like substance (only been in for about 10 minutes). Is it dead or just stressed?
