    Can you bump up the warm dry hide temp to 88-92*F in case that's why Spotty's appetite is "spotty"?
    I just set his thermostat to 88, now it's 88 in the moist warm and dry warm hides.

    LIVE prey usually has a good feeding response. Cut off the back cricket legs right below the "knees". That keeps them in the bowl.

    I use these 8 ounce Anchor-brand clear glass dishes from a kitchen store with a beach rock as a ramp.

    88*F is at the lower end of the 88-92* range we like to see. Bump it up some still. Try 90*.

    I have Hydrofarm's Jump Start MTPRTC thermostat for my leo. I set it for 91*. It's normal for these thermostats to turn off at 91 (the set temp). The actual temperature inside the enclosure may rise a little, and then fall a couple degrees, before the thermostat turns back on.

    Spotty finally ate 6 crickets yesterday, three of them being covered in the new reptivite I got with no D3. However, when he pooped today, his poop was gray. Could this be because of the reptivite? He shed a week ago or so.

    I also just switched his crickets diet to adult beardie food by zoo med, collard greens, and occasional carrots.
