:I recently just moved my caimen into his new enclosure, i dont know if your enclosure is the same one you have him in or a new one, but it took my big boy about 3 weeks to start eating again. As Mr.Moss stated, let him get time to adjust to the new area, if he is getting skinny it sounds like his temps are different, i noticed i had to get my temps at the exact temps i usually kept my old tank at or he wasnt very happy.Another thing to help him be more comfortable is provide him with a few good hiding spots, so that evan when he is scared he feels safe under a log or in a hide. If he is starting to look down right bad(his health) take him to the vet he might have something wrong with him(parasites etc.). Hope i helped ya out a bit
