Hello,

That is great news he is doing better today!
Do you think he enjoying the 20 gallon? That's really good to hear he has opened his
eyes more & was more active. Bless him, it sounds like he is feeling better, too. Definitely
keep us posted on his progress.

Thats good but your gonna need to go bigger- make sure you are keeping proper temps small tanks are hard to adjust temps in them --- I think the most I used for my 20 gallon was a 75 watt

Still kicking another day! Hurray! I got the little reptitemp tool to keep better track of his temps and found a fixture with a dimmer on it. His eyes are still closed but I can tell he’s trying to blink. I also got him some chicken baby food to try and i think he likes it? He was licking it off his lips on his own. I hope he starts showing weight gain soon though

He’s opening his eyes again, and I took him to the vet today for a checkup on his progress. The vet said he will most likely pull through! His RI is gone and he’s on dewormer for three days. He also gained 1 gram of weight :)
