he's going through location stress, so give it some time before you start bathing him. they really don't need to bathe often anyway. it can dry their scales out and cause other problems. we usually give a couple a month unless we have poop messes that need cleaning.

Sounds good I'll stop, although I was reading that it can be good for them especially to help pooping

it can if pooping is an issue. but right now him being in new surroundings it is doing more harm than good.

a lot of times people think bathing helps with hydration. but the only way that helps is if they actually drink from the bath. they do not absorb water through their skin or vent.

Actually good to know, most of the research I've done only says it "can be good for pooping and hydration" no specifics, Thanks :)

I just set Swordtail's timer for his bath and paused it so I could actually fill his soaking bowl up and he crawled over my phone and canceled the timer 🤣
Mirage came out of brumation on April 26. He was doing great. On May 2 he started acting funny. We just redid his tank, and he keeps going into one of his hides. He just lays there. He shows no intrest in food. HELP!
