They are not snakes and they do not have a "winter" season in the wild. Temps are pretty consistant year round albeit they do drop a little but still remain in the high 78-80¬į range. Stress however is definately a factor, not sure why you dismiss it so easily.

Good to hear it's eating again though...

Cheers
Steve

Nothing wrong with that, in fact they are better off without it. Just be sure you try to vary the types of foods if possible. Keep trying different things. You want to make sure the diet is well balanced. Remember even though they are carnivors, they still need vegetable matter. Normally this would be achieved through what they eat, ie in the belly of the creature eaten. It's not always an easily accomplished task but worth trying.

Cheers
Steve

Good stuff, just be sure you add some vitamins to it at least once a week. Wouldn't hurt to try hiding a pea or other green vegetable matter inside the fish flesh.

Cheers
Steve

Actually I'm not suprised on the garlic. I never had much luck either. Anything with a strong odor or that masks the natural scent of the food will typically get ignored. Don't forget eyesight is one thing these guys don't rely on. Try Zoe or Vita Chem.

Cheers
Steve
