Hello all

I have a 6 year old female who is acting completely out of the norm. She has stopped eating and is frantically digging in her tank.
She is alone and has always been alone so I know she’s not pregnant. Does she still lay eggs? What should we do to help her? Water is maintained at 82 degrees, she has a basking platform which she is currently showing no interest, adequate filtration and heat & uv lamps.

I am quite concerned by her behaviour and lack of appetite. Would appreciate any input

Thank you

Yes, females kept along can still develop eggs. I would try to feel for eggs before you decide what to do next.
