Ive gotten one of my crested to eat crickets and baby fruit and its doing well but the other one still acting weird. If it sees a cricket, it will go into hunting mode and eye it but then the strike never ever comes. One night i watched the crestie (the one that doesnt eat) stalk the cricket for like 2 hours before it just ignored it and clibed up its plant. The only way i can get it to eat stuff is to spoon feed but even then it takes only 3 or licks before getting anooyed and jumping away. Ive watched it deficate and its all watery and orangey gooey, unlike the other which is watery but then theres a very black chunk that comes out. When i first got the 2 it was the same size, now theres a Drastic! different (3/4 of an inch). Sigh basically i dont know what to do now, it seems to be moving around fine, alert etc but just not eating enough. Any suggestions?????
