    it's always been 74ish at night and 76-77ish at day, and I've noticed only a drop or two in degree at night during the colder days but it's been gradually warming up. I've never let it get below 72. Her tank is in front of a window. It's always closed, and there is a curtain and her foam board backing between the window and the tank, so it doesn't ever get overly hot.

    I picked up some new food. She's sitting by it now, so hopefully she smells it.

    Do I need to take her to the vet if she doesn't eat this or crickets?

    also thank you so much for putting up with all my questions. It seems like no matter how much research I do, I still have a lot to ask.

    You are welcome, Cosmonaughty. Questions further education.

    Any lick marks?

    It doesn't seem like a couple degree temp drop should affect her eating. Is her enclosure in a quiet location by the window?

    If she doesn't try crickets or her new food and continues to lose weight, a knowledgeable exotics vet is the next step.

    No lick marks. She's kept in my bedroom, which is very quiet. I keep the lights off in here at night for her too, so she isn't stuck hiding all night with my insomnia haha

    I'm going to contact a vet monday if she isn't eating crickets or food by then. I provided food in 2 locations in case she can't find the normal spot (which doesn't make sense, to be honest, it's never moved since I bought her, but... you never know). Maybe that will help too.
    Thanks Elizabeth Freer thanked for this post

    What size is her enclosure?

    Only weigh or handle her no more than 1x per week.

    You may be able to get discoid roaches - they are legal in places where dubias are not.

    Try the Pangea flavors, and mix the fruit ones with the flavors with insects.

    She's in an 18x18x24. I have never handled her more frequently than that, I'm too worried about stressing her out haha

    I got 3 crickets and dusted them in her food and she ate them quickly. I'm quite proud of her, to be honest.

    Haha thanks! The first thing that popped up when I searched up "Discoid Roaches" was that they're legal in florida lol I'll check it out.

    I'll try mixing flavors and see if that peaks her interest. Thank you
