WOW, the thing i read said tilapia had no vitamin A! that could very well be the issue! i guess i will invest in a roach colony. Discoids! i'll suppliment with earthworms and just force him to eat kingworms, he will if he's hungry enough.

maybe i'll set up a 20gal long for feeding him crickets. that way i can do the gutload thing. plus, kingworms don't dust well, so the crickets may be a good answer.

thank you for your help, i guess i allways thought the uvb, calcium/phosphor, d3 connection was just something that balances itself as long as you have high calcium, lower phosphorus and high uvb and d3. i never knew vit A could throw it off.

he adjusts his basking as he has a very broad range of basking sites. there is a vine 6" away from the light, a platform 12 away and a hole in the platform that lets the direct light through to the floor of the inclosure. and depending on ambient room temps (wire cage) he will adjust where he basks. he is actually quite active, jumping and leaping from wall to wall to platform to water.

one thing, back in his old tank i tried to give him a 29 gallon water tank with a filter but i diden't realize the filter was woefully unable to clean his water and since the tub was black i diden't realize the water was getting gross. id imagine he drank alot of it, could it be possible that the gap is caused by a bacterial infection even though there is no swelling or discoloration?

thanks for your help, obviously you have a finer grasp on nutrition for specific reptiles than me.

any tips on how to get my water dragon to eat his fruits n veggi's?

thanks!!
