RES Behaviour

Hi, I have 2 RES - T-Bone & Racer. We bought them together and are now 10 months old. Initially T-Bone had issues growing and Racer was bullying him around. now the situation has turned. Racer stopped growing and T-Bone is bullying him around.
In terms of diet T-Bone and Racer eats the same thing. In addition to this T-Bone eats Racers and his own excrement's. I tried to discourage it but he just heat seeks it. They get regular dose of UV-B lighting and gets dry time at least 4 - 5 hours on an average.
I am not sure what is the best course of action here as I now feel Racer is not eating as much as he use to.
Please advise...

Welcome to the forum!

Since you have a few issues, you might want to make separate topics so we can figure it out. I would say mainly that RES can be very aggressive, and males will eventually need to be separated.
