Hi, Thanks for the information. I have cut back on the the supplements, I do each once a week. I have added a ZooMed UV fixture with two bulbs, and I leave it on for 12 hours on each enclosure. I offer the hatchling a variety of healthy foods, but he doesn't eat much. He has no energy. He is obviously dehydrated - his eyes, nostrils, and skin are very dry. I soak him and dampen his head, he rubs his eyes. I dampen his substrate a little to make sure it is not extremely dry and I offer him water. He is just so lethargic. My 2 other hatchlings and 2 adults are still doing well.
