Well he is more active, but still doesnt eat. He is pacing back and forth by the front of the enclosure , and scratching at the glass, like he is trying to get out or at his reflection.

I took Godzilla to the vet a week ago and they examined him and said he is healthy and fine. No signs of mbd. Gave him some wormer and a 2nd dose taken home to be given later this week. Also gave me some critical care type food and syringes to feed him with. Problem is he still wont eat and hasnt pooped in weeks. The vet said no signs of impaction. I am at a loss. He is active if i take him out and give him a bath. When back in his enclosure all he does os go into his hide and sleep. Lighting is all new, heat zones are good. I have mo clue what to do.

Sorry to hear that he's still having issues. Is that heat bulb a 150 over his basking site ? And the red bulb is on the other end, what wattage is that ?

150 basking and 75 i thunk on the red. The red is only on to add heat to that side of the tank. 100ish under basking and 80 on the red bulb side and a bit cooler in the middle.

What is the temp. in the room that he's in ? And how are you measuring the temps. in the tank ? Just trying to rule out to much heat as a cause of him hiding.

House temp is 68 all the time, temps measured with the better tank thermometers. I will get a digital thermometer tomorrow to more accurately measure temp.

I'm pretty sure that it's going to be too hot there. Can you get a 100 watt basking bulb in place of the 150 ?
