Just because one tortoise in a group has parisites does not mean they all do. It is best to get them all checked if possible. Keep pleanty of food in there pen as they will eat....well you know what if they run out of food. Clean up after them every day and if you have standing water in there pen clean it EVERY day if you think there is an outbreak happening. I dont even recomend having standing drinking water in a sulcata pen ever. i just let the hose run for like 15 min and they will drink every other day or so. If the sulcata is big enough i will leave out one of thoes self filling type water bowls for them, the one with the 5 gal water jug on top. I do make mud holes for them though but let them dry up compleatly before reweting them. Then again i have had perfectly healthy proven adult sulcatas get lethargic, lose appitite and starve themselves with no justification. I had a proven female die on me this season like that with countless trips to the vet and no explination. Thats just how it goes sometimes.
