Hello,

So I have had this problem for a little while. My male ackie is attacking the female. I thought moving them into a larger enclosure would help but so far he still bites her head and trys to flip her over. I caught him doing this today and flicked his tail with my finger. He scurried away pretty quickly and so did she. They ran into their hides where they have stayed for the rest of the day. In their previous enclosure the female became really frail and so I built this new enclosure with the hopes of rectifying any territorial issues. She has definitley gotten thicker in the new cage but the dominance issues are still at play. The new cage is 4 feet tall 2 feet wide and four feet long. I've got anywhere from 12 inches to 20 inches of dirt in the cage as well. I've got 3 hot spots: one they could climb to and two closer to the bottom of the cage. Today I tried rete stacking some tile in an attempt's to provide a better hide/heating situation under one of the hot spots.

If anyone can offer anyadvice i would really appreciate it I am at my wits end.
