It's an improvement! I would also add a terra cotta saucer for water dish.
You can also add some more hides, plants (you can use some fake ones too) so enclosure looks nice and full. Sherdill will feel more secure and less anxious if he has lots of places to hide. That's what they do in the nature.
I've heard that terracotta absorbs water. So my parents said that they saw a different smaller dish that is a bit different material

As long as he has water in the enclosure he can get in and out of easily, that should be fine.

Yeah I give him some water after every meal, since there is no other way to feed him. I will probably get him the water dish soon.
Leave water in 24x 7. Very important. They will not drink when you wish. Very important they can climb in and drink or soak.

Do we have an update?!
Yes! We tried an online vet because there are no vets available in my country at the moment. They didn't say much but they said we could try giving him some steam to help is sniffles. We updated his enclosure and moved him upstairs which reaches about 30 - 40 degrees. So far, he hasn't got any slime coming from his nose anymore. He seems much happier too.

Reading this thread was very stressful. 😰

I'm so glad that the latest thread updates are that enclosure is improving and most importantly that Sherdil is getting better.

Great job, @Sherdil on seeking help and doing what needed to be done for Sherdil.
