Is she eating the yellow squash? That would be causing the runny stools-+- try some other veggies+ sweet potato raw shredded that will keep her regular but less runny- look at the nutrition website for more ideas on greens and other veggies to feed-

Ok so the butternut squash won’t give her those runny stools.

I am not sure about butternut but the yellow for sure --- lay off the yellow and see what her stool does

Ok today is the day the dubias (came earlier thank expected). I went with a bigger plastic tote, I have the bottom lined with paper towels. I also put some carrots in there and some fruit. I’m offering Dubia chow to see if they will eat it. Also I added egg cartons for hiding. Also will they mate in there and should I cover it with a blanket??

Does her tail look fine I just noticed a little curve at the end and it’s kind of dark.[Click image to enlarge]

Do not cover the dubias w/ a blanket --- let it breath free --- you can look on the feeder board for more info on taking care of the dubia colony---- the tail looks ok I would need to have AHBD take a look for sure I dont want to give you wrong advice on that -- it doesnt look like its been nipped or pinched so it may just be shed coming on

No tail rot would be black the tip would be brittle and dried out--- and if there was a infection you would see it moving up the tail --- tail rot can occur if the tail has been nipped or bit by a tank mate or pinched like in the door of the cage etc some sort of injury

What have you been treating w/ ? Lamosil or betadine soak? Not sure if those can be repaired or not as long as its not causing pain or getting infected your good :)

I’ve tried betadine soaks and also I just pinched the bottom of her tail lightly and she pulled it away so that’s a good sign. She still has feeling there.

It would of been infected already- don't fret your good-- we use raw unpasteurized honey for infection but your does not look to be infected- the only thing we tell people is not to leave crickets in the tank cuz they will go straight to the honey -- w/ it having feeling in the tail it's not dead so let the shed do its thing

Ok I won’t worry I’ll just keep her clean with baths and those dubias are really good thanks for recommending that place none dead on arrival and came 3 days earlier will go again.
