So I changed my red foot enclosure from a tortoise table from Zoomed with reptibark to a 35 gallon long with coconut substrate, a cave, some rocks and a small food bowl a lititle pool to wet his feet or drink water. But now he's not eating as much. He use to go to his plate and not leave til he was done, Now he eats some walks away walk over the food and may or may not come back. His diet consist of red or green lettuce, spring mix, melons, strawberries once a week and I introduced before I changed his enclosure Zoomed tropical forest diet which he loves. I am not sure what to expect he's my 1st red foot but his appetite has decreased even though he is still active.

Yeah it may take a while longer than that, I would also suggest not handling him/her very much for a few days. Maybe Just to soak.
