    You need to seperate her asap! Baby her a little and feed the heck out of her. Maybe take in a fecal sample to a good vet and have them check for parasites. Keep a close eye on her and make sure she puts the weight back on. After a few months, if she is 100% again, you can try to put them back together.

    Yeah I would just separate them and monitor her feeding and weight. If it doesnt get better try to take to vet.

    I have had a similiar problem with two of my males. The females were both agressive feeders and I thought the males were too. But not compared to my females I guess? I just seperated them and gave the males a little tlc. Plus if it's a feeding issue then offer more nectar (diet) and less crickets as theres no compettion in lapping up diet.
