    if you are keeping him in a bowl or something he can get ammonia burns. change his water every day and go to your local pets store Also put him in a lizard carrier a for a few weeks with the medicine in it. this should help.

    black spots are a sign ofpregnancy. keep a look out for some babies. if its a girl then she will be a mom. most likely black spots are baby eyes or gravid spot.
