Thanks alot for all the advice. He has calmed down a little bit and started eating again on Saturday but not as much as usuall. He's being very picky and only wants to eat waxworms and nothing else. Now i have another problem. My female stopped eating. The last time she ate was Friday. She ate a few mealworms. Since then, nothing. She's just bouncing all over the tank. She gained alot of weight and got fuller. But why all of a sudden did she stop eating? I didn't do anything different from the last time that she ate.
: : :: Yes i did and he tried to attack her again and i was told that with him trying to always mate with her that that can be alot of stress on her and they should be seperated because of that reason.
: : This is true. Males can be very hyper during breeding season. Keep them separate and make sure he cannot see her at all...this may help him calm down. Many of my males slow down or stop eating during breeding season, but bounce right back after a bit.
: : Hope this helps
: : Meri
: I agree with Meri, try putting a piece of cardboard or something between the tanks so they cannot see each other. If that doesn't work, put him in a completly different room. As far as eating, have you tried any of his "favorites" A non-eater here got restarted with a couple of grapes cut in half, and hand fed. After that, he was downing everything given to him. Good luck, and keep us posted!
