First...the worms. Moving to a new location is going to compromise the little guy. Change is stressful to igs and you no for a fact that he has some sort of parasite. So, what did they give you...was it a dewormer, and what kind? Even if you don't take the ig to a vet, at least drop off a stool sample and get an accurate diagnosis and treatment. Make sure you tell them what med you have given. In a new situation, internal parasites can cause lethargy and poor condition.

I'm glad to hear that this little guy is much better than the other. You can offer two water containers...one for pooping and one for drinking. Sounds like you're on your way to potty trained ig, cool!

Along with heat, make sure you have a UV bulb...so, so very important! There are some other posts below regarding diet. Greens like collard, mustard, and turnip with squash, green beans, etc. will serve your ig better in the long run than lettuce and carrots.
