Fat ts do not want to eat...they do NOT need food. Dont feed it till after it molts....even if thats 6 months from now.

You might want to give the enclosure a re do though.

Yeah, fat T's do not want to eat, they just 'lean back' like Fat Joe :pompous:

Ts shouldnt be fed on a set schedule.... there's no advantage to schedules and plenty of disadvantages. Such as the confusion you're facing.

Well it wont need to eat till it molts. But then its depends on many variables. But generally speaking, you can feed a t more often, or larger prey right after a molt, and as they plump, you can feed less often and/or smaller prey and as the t continues to plump, even less often and never anything but smallish prey.
