Thanks to all who have posted. You all said a lot of things that really makes sense.

He is still hanging in there. I have been soaking him every other day in water(with calcium &D3)and on the off days in a mixture of Ensure and water. I have not seen him eat anything and have watched very closely although I guess he could be eating very little of something. He keeps fluctuating between 50 and 51 grams. Yesterday he was 51 after his soak. I have improved his conditions per my other post keeping humidity from 60-85% and his daytime temps at about 80, with night drops to about 74. I do not use a heat light as he really didn't seem to like it much and it dries everything out too quickly, I do have a Reptisun 5.0 over his enclosure on one end and the lid to his rubbermaid container over the remainder. My reptile room is heated to 85 degrees. I also have my adopted adult box turtle in there(she is doing fantastic) along with my Uromastyx and Bearded Dragon.

I did notice after his soaks yesterday and today he had been in his water dish which is new. I have Reptomin in there. It did not look like he had eaten any though. I am not going to tube feed him. I just need to sit tight at this point. He is still active and does not appear sick at all. I just hope there isn't something that I am missing but I have tried everything.
