Still no luck feeding. I’ve also noticed he’s hanging out against the glass a lot? Here’s a picture. https://imgur.com/gallery/Ulk2u0Q
Not sure if that means anything, but he’s never really done it before.
What type of thermometer are you using?
As Karrie suggested, if they get too hot they will move out of the basking area to try &
regulate their body temperatures. The 20 gallons are a little smaller so sometimes, it is
hard to regulate the temperatures in smaller tanks.
You could try using some bee pollen to help with his appetite, too.
100 watt bulb is going to be too hot for a 20 gallon tank -- try a 75 watt and see what he does - please weigh him and keep track of the weight -- we want him gaining not losing --- and get a temp w / that 75 watt bulb ---
I’ve been using a 75 watt bulb from the beginning— I did buy a new one but that’s because I didn’t realize the one I had was already “white”. The temperatures I’ve mentioned before have all been with the 75 watt bulb. Sorry for the confusion there.
I’ll start taking his weight ASAP. Hopefully by then he’ll be eating, though. Thank you again.
Just tried to hand feed him some mustard greens (I put in a fresh salad first thing this morning and he didn’t touch it) and a cricket to no avail. He’s been walking around his tank a bit this morning but was more lethargic than usual when I was handling him.
He’s still mainly sticking to the back of the tank on the warm side, under the UVB.
I see my lizard is being given Allopurinol 100ml tablet 10mg/ml (0.4) and tramadol 0.2ml every other day to help with gout. I have tramadol at home can I water it down and give it to her and if so do anyone know how much to water down ?
