Thanks, I think you gave me a lot of that advice when I first posted him a month and a half ago.
He has a 2x50gal bin setup, with an 8" gap cut for him to go between.
50/50 coir/sand substrate, any where from 2"-10" around the cage.
He has 1 preferred hide, and is under MVB at 30" with a bask of 95o.
Fecal was clean a month ago, and again today.
Today I had a vet diagnose an ulcer in his eye.
Long story short, I was thoughtless and allowed him to get to close to his MVB, he itched his eye, and we suspect that caused the ulcer to form. A load of cash and 2 week of meds and I am told he should be fine.

Would anyone like to take a wild guess on his age from that pic?
I know thats like asking how old a mountain is, but still...
