I have a group of 7 C. carinata carinata and non of them will eat. I expected to have to work with them, but no luck so far. All of them still have good body weight except for one, which I will be forcefeeding in a few days.

set up
They are all in appropriately sized containers in a rack. I have no heat on them as my reptile room stays between 82 and 84 in the day and drops to around 73-75 at night. I can give them extra heat, but Ive kept C. aspera in these conditions for years without a problem. They are on aspen bedding.

feeding methods tried
ive tried split heat, live overnight in deli cup, and lizard and bird scenting.

I have found one guy I can order frogs from, but I believe they are a little to big for most of them. Anyone with any other good tips or a good place to order small reptile feeders let me know. thanks.
