provide some more info like enclosure dimensions and temperature hot and cold end etc these may help people figure out whats going on when was the last time he was eating normally? and what was he eating then?
Hi,try mixing some greens with dog or cat food...they usually cant resist for long.

Just nothing fish based! Try apple, strawberry, cucumber, Mine particularly liked cooked chicken and pasta. Try soaking the pellets in a bit of fruit juice instead of water, they smell sweeter and probably taste better for it.
try warming the food too, releasing the aroma3 x childreni, 1 x spotted, 1 x Georgetown Stimsoni, 1 x Murray Darling, 1 x Central Beardie and from the 5/5/13 2 Shingleback babies I'm here to help, not judge..like others enjoy doing MAD MINI WOMAN! Hot bricks ROCK!
It's winter. Trying to get food into a skinny bluey will be problematic now at best.

Dog food they love it as well as mached peaches strawberries mashed potato with peas, slugs and spiders and meal worms Be carefull with the banana its full of potasiumThe most dangerous snake is ? The one that just bit you !
as snake lady says banana only occasionally,there is nothing wrong with snails it is their basic diet but all sorts of fruit( my girl loves fruit salad she licks up the syrup before eating the fruit),chicken mince and other dog food,but no fishproudly serving pogona vitticeps and pogona henry lawsoni
WTB....hypo pygmy beardie and eventually a stimmie
He has quite a small tank as my all the other big ones are ages away and he usually is normal temp as his cage is a bit high and I have been trying to find and object like a branch so that he can reach higher, thanks for the help I might be getting a heat mat to make him more active.
Also I have tried crickets and he has no interest in them
Probably won't be interested in anything if he can't get to his basking spot.
They are not arboreal and won't climb branches to chase heat.
I have a mesh roof I could cut a hole in it and dangle the bulb through it
Can you post a pic of his tank? Might help with giving advice on set up.
