Recently my indigo stopped feeding! I live in Illinois and the weather was turning cold as he stopped, so I suspected he's brumating. So I increased the photo-period and temperature and still can't get him to feed.... Also I recently(also couple months ago) put him in a massive cage, and was initially worried that the temperature gradient may be off, it isn't! I was using a sand mix in the large tank temporarily, but he is now back in his old, 40 G breeder and still refuses to eat.... Any thoughts?! P.S. I did take him to a vet, who said he was perhaps slightly dehydrated and I should soak him. I was soaking him, and did so daily for a week after. He just came out of shed and is again not showing interest in food ... Live mice, dead mice, I even got him a snake...
