I got a male albino leo at a reptile show in november. He was fat and healthy then, was fine in dec and now this month he has slowly started loosing weight. I havent seen any runny or bloody poop and the female he is with is fine. She came from a different place though and im wondering if maybe he was sick when i bought him. He eats the heck out of crickets and he gets pleanty of water and heat. he has a box in the middle of the tank for shedding...it had vermiculite in it but they pretty much kicked all of it out...i have seen him poop so i know he is pooping. I am going to take the femal out of the tank. any other suggestions? I havent seen anything in the poop to suggest parasites. I cant take him to the vet right now, my car was in an accident and is in the shop. what else can i do?
