My boyfriend just bought 4 female leopard geckos that came with a nice 40 breeder tank. The guy he got them from got them from a guy who stopped breeding them and subsequently stopped feeding them.

3 of them look alright, are active but thin and eat voraciously, but there's one that has us worried. You can see every bone in her body, she'll eat only occasionally when you really prod her to, and keeps her eyes closed most of the time. She'll walk around feebly, mostly just to shift positions around the cooler side of the cage. We hand feed the geckos so the fact that she's in with the others isn't a huge problem.

Does anyone have recommendations about getting her fattened up?
