Gozer doesn't stay moist for too long. I'm so scared he's getting dehydrated but I'm also scared he's not eating. I called the pet store and they said he ate crickets and CGD. I tried feeding him crickets and he refused to eat them. I'm not sure if he's eating his CGD either. :C Does anyone have any advice for me on these issues? I'm really worried about him.

How long have you had him? It takes time for them to settle in and feel comfortable enough to start eating regularly.

As long as your misting regularly, don't worry about dehydration. Just keep the correct humidity and he will be fine.

Is there poop in the cage? With cresties, especially young ones, it can be hard to tell if they're eating. But if they're pooping, they're eating. I just watch for poop in the cage, if there is poop there's no reason to be concerned. Not all cresteds like crickets either, some will eat them, some won't.

I talked to someone during the summer who is a Rhac specialist. He felt it's really important for the humidity to be decent throughout the tank. In response to that, I laid some plexiglass sheets on top of the screen top of my exoterra and put the light on top of that, which seems to increase humidity. I sometimes see my crestie eating crickets and just about never see him eating CGD, but he's very healthy and weighs 53 grams.
