I must have spoken too soon! The same day I messaged that they hadn't been eating, they ate later that day and both eaten today as well, so for two days in a row, they have both enjoyed pieces of nightcrawlers.

And thank you for the advice on the light! I'll be sure to turn that on during the day, then.

That's good to hear! It can take a long time for them to fully recover, but getting them regularly eating healthy food like nightcrawlers is big step in the right direction and should pack some much needed weight on them! :)
