As Julir said, please fill out the form first.

My gut reaction though (besides glass cage generally being bad)....is your enclosure big enough?

What bout UVB? Supplements? etc..

This is the 3rd thread you've posted for the same problem...you need to get it sorted out...but we need more information if you want us to help you. Please fill out the questions in the "how to ask for help" thread at the top of the health section so we can see what's going on...and post some pictures if you can.

There can be many reasons for it not to be eating....improper temperatures, illness, size of the insects, etc. etc. We need more information!!!!!
