Thanks for the reply.
His normal diet varies month by month of different greens and veggies. Being that its winter time i cutback his feeding since he wasnt eating much. ( I wish i could hibernate him, but im terrified that ill lose him. So im going to wait til next year to try that.)
I had him in a sand and cocfiber mix substrate but he was eating it so someone reccommended i switch to the alfalfa pellets, at least he can digest it. And i do have a humid spot, i had to make it out of dull colored sponges glued in a plastic container.. he tried to eat everything else i tried ( moss, vermiculite, papertowels...).
