    I recently bought an albino leopard gecko. She isn't eating as much as my other geckos, and isnt puttin on as much weight. I have a baby leo that is like 8 month old that weighs 25 grams and my almost 1 year old albino only weighs 30. I am giving her electrolytes and have tried a pinky. What else can I do? She was being housed alone and i thought she was eating well I kno she was. Just not as much at my other females. She is now in a 30 with two other females. Please Help

    I would strongly suggest that you seperate her now and get her feeding again. She is most likely too stressed by the other females or could be submissive enough that she is too scared to eat....and eventually she will wither away...and you dont want that.....good luck!

    well I kno she has to be eating something because she is still having bowel movements and she is maintaining a weight of 30 grams...just makes me made because I bought her because I wanted to breed her with my blizzard to get blazing blizards but she has to get fat to do that!

    Have you had a fecal test to rule out internal parasites?
    That could explain the lack of weight gain.

    I would really strongly suggest a seperation as well. She could be stressed because she is used to being "the queen of her castle" and now there are other geckos to contend with for food and prime hide spots and such. I would also strongly suggest a fecal exam. They are usually relatively cheap and most vets (even vets who do not specialize in reptiles) can do one properly and ID the culprits.
