Hello everyone. This is my first time posting. I’ve got a hatchling, about 3months old. Hasn’t gained weight in a month and I’m panicking. He is active. Eats everyday (not huge amounts though). Daily soaks in warm water, temps and humidity has been good. He’s been this since since I bought him and I got him when he was about 1.5month. Any tips. Also, I haven’t been able to get to a vet since the nearest one is 5 hours. 😢

He may have been started wrong by the breeder. To overcome that, read the care sheet and make changes in the way you have him set up:

Thank you! That care sheet is very helpful.
