I recently adopted two female anoles (likely adding an adopted male soon) from a local school district. I have them in a 24 tall, 20 long, 10 wide planted terrarium with screened lid, equipped with basking bulb, uvb bulb, and nighttime heat bulb.

I'm worried about a couple things though... the little female seems permanently brown, which I read is a sign of stress. The big one is brown a lot, but will turn green on occasion. She, however, seems rather skinny - I can see ribs.

The big one has been eyeing the tray of mealworms in her viv, but won't go for them. I finally rigged a curtain around the aquarium - I have five cats who are pretty interested.

I read a couple posts here about peach baby food. Should I give that a shot? Any other thoughts? Thanks so much!
