 My Male Leopard Gecko Isn’t Eating

I don’t know why but my male leopard gecko has stopped eating. When I first got him he was very timid, but started eating right away. He would eat up to five crickets a day and was bulking up quickly. I noticed he was getting to big for his ten gallon tank, so I decided to move him to a 20-25 gallon. This is when I noticed something was wrong. I had placed a big rock hide that he could go inside and climb on top of and going inside, along with a few other hides. It was on the cool side, and not the warm side. He would never come out of it to eat, drink, or even get heat. He would stay in there all day and all night. He was eating and coming out in the ten gallon, so I didn’t know what was going on. He started to get smaller, so I put him back in the ten gallon. He is coming out to get heat and water now, but isn’t eating much. I feed him crickets because he is picky about most other things, but he only eats about 3 a week. I’m concerned about his health and well being. Any answers?

 My Male Leopard Gecko Isn’t Eating

My Female leopard gecko stopped eating for 2 months until i figured out the problem. I had been looking high and low for an answer and apparently i was the only one who has had this problem because i couldn’t find help Anywhere. I even talked to a vet and they didn’t know how to help!

-I made a really long reply with tons of details, and i realized you needed answers, not a story.

Make sure his hot cave isn’t too hot. Mine had a cave with a heat rock in the sand underneath and it got WAY too hot.
