    I would say to limit handling untill the leachie is eating well. I really do not handle my little ones often as I don't want to stress them out. Also I would make sure the cage is on the small side. If put into too large of enclosure they will usually refuse to eat. I use small plastic sterilite shoe boxes for ones that are the size of yours. Also have some cork bark so he has places to hide.
    They really like to feel secure and will make use of various hiding spots. congrats on your new leachie!

    thanx again! i did switch him to a smaller tank as the tub i had i think was too big and he did seem to only hangout in one or two spots. hope this works out for him!
