Spook the leopard geoko

My leopard gecko spook is losing a lot of weight I don't think he is eating, he only stays in his house, and his tank mate Sandy who we think is the more dominant one is becoming agitated when we try and go near him or pick him up... Spook is usually the bigger and thicker looking one now he is significantly smaller than Sandy.

Hello,

Are both leopard geckos males, or male & female?
I would separate them for now, maybe using some type of divider if possible. Most of the time,
if one is starting to dominate over the other, usually the one being bullied wont make it or will
become very ill.
Do you have any pictures you could post for us?

We are unsure of their sex and Sandy is not bullying spook she is trying to protect him. she gets very agitated when we pick him up to check him out... like I said we don't know the sexes we are just guessing, they get very upset when separated, they grew up in separate tanks then some personal events happened and at no choice or fault of me and my husband... they ended up in a pet store once we were aware they were there we got them back and they were being homed together and hates being separated since. every time we check spook out Sandy checks him out and loves up on him. I will try and get you those pictures tomorrow.

Hello,

Great, looking forward to pictures of them both.
Maybe you could try feeding them separately to see if that helps out?

Hello,

He looks good, is he the smaller one then? How has he been doing, is he eating very
much yet?

Hello,

Ok, thanks! Maybe you should try feeding them separately to be sure that he has equal
chance of being able to get some food.

I think you should sperate them. If that doesn't help, get Spook to a vet. They'll know what to do.

i feel so sad reading your about me 😢
Clapton is acclimating okay I think. He's quick as lightning so I'm not sure how much I should bring him out of his house yet. He's not at all interested in his salad though. I wonder if I should change what I'm giving him. Least he's eating his crickets.

Things to do:
Buy calcium powder
Material to raise surface for basking spot
Scenery decals for back of tank
Taking my beardie for a walk
Hi everyone, I have a question please. I have a thick branch I got from outside. It has been in freezing temperatures so I know that it is insect free. I took it off the ground and sat it up during a night we got down to 15 so the entire thing would freeze. Well tonight I put white vinegar all over it too cleanse it since it won't fit in my oven. Do I need to rinse with water tomorrow or is it fine left alone dried?
