I apologize that no one has responded to your question sooner. Different experts come online at various times. I just logged on and saw your question. My name is ***** ***** I’m a biologist with a special interest in reptiles. I'm sorry to hear of this problem. Some additional information will help me determine the best steps for you to take.

What temperatures do you maintain under the basking light and in the water?

Will Skye eat?

What types of lighting and heating equipment do you have?

Thank you.
