We have a male MHD (Sonic) from Cheyanne that we've had since July of last year. He mostly ate crickets but for the past few weeks he's not wanting to eat anything, maybe a cricket here and there. We've tried waxworms, mealworms, night crawlers, etc. but he just isn't interested. He also does not like to be handled the past few months and puffs out his throat. I changed the UV bulb recently because I remembered that it needed changing and was hoping that might make a difference--long shot, but you never know. Temps and humidity have been kept consistent. He actually looks well, bright-eyed, head up, etc. We never see him in the water and that's been typical for him since we've had him. Any ideas?
