IMO put a piece of cardboard between the two tanks. I agree that the toad could be poisoning youur lizard, and your lizard should be placed in a non-toad environment, no matter what the cause of his despondence. But your lizard might be just sick. If your lizard does not perk up pretty soon, I urge you to find a good reptile vet. Small reptiles get overwhelmed with infections very quickly as I recently learned. He could have had a stable population of some bad cocci or salmonella, and it has grown out of control at this time. I nearly lost my baby female Jewelled Lacerta to that very scenario.

I had been used to my large lizards signalling me about their gut infections by slowing their eating, and I can take them in in a rather large two or three week window. Tiny reptiles have *much* smaller windows of opportunity to treat and heal.

I wish you all the best,

Roger
