It could also just be stress of moving enclosures. Vit B deficiency can also cause those symptoms and extra vit b is needed during stress situations (ie moving enclosures). I would up both the calcium (w/d3) levels and the vitamin levels on your guy for awhile. Twitching is early stages and easily reversable. If it keeps up, you may want to take him to a vet for a booster shot.

:Hi everyone how are you all doing? 1st time for everything so here goes. I have an 7-8 month old frilly that was recently moved to a 55 gallon tank a couple of days ago, he seems to like the new set-up, but I noticed today that he has a twitch or muscle spasms in his feet & calfs. Is this common?? I havn't noticed it before if it is. I guess I'm curious as to what could be causing this??? I kept the substrate the same, he has a reptisun 5.0 strip light, his basking bulb, 45% humidity and a lot of branches and shelves to hang on. I'm probabally just over-worring but any info on this would be great, thanks ahead!!

:-Just a guy who loves his frill
