Hi Bruce. Sorry to hear that. As you know I havent had any hatchlings yet so can't help really. Danny might be the person you need here. Good luck with the wee one. I think Chris is away for the weekend

No, definately not to young for reptiboost. I'd start doing that as soon as possible and think about setting this one up on his own.

I used critical care in my tinies bath water I also used a blender on his food, making a mix of weeds and a couple of pellets, it blenderised into a pulp which he ate. Sadly he died after a couple of months but wasn't very well from the start but he did manage to eat his food that way and the added pellet gave him that bit extra.
