My first recommendation would be to separate them not only because the one is sick, but if will get it away from a bullying situation (if that really is what's happening).

Smelly poop usually indicates parasites. I would recommend that you have the vet do a fecal.

The lethargic behavior is indicating that something is wrong. How old is the sick dragon? Is is male or female? Also...does the vitamin stuff you were told to syringe feed it contain preformed vitamin A? D3? Phosphorous?

Can you give me more information about the set-up please...what brand and type (spiral, compact, long linear tube, etc.) of UVB light are you using? What supplements do you use and how often for each? What do you gutload/feed the insects with? Please be specific.

(Background information....I have kept/bred/hatched/raised dragons for over 15 years as well as many other reptiles.)
