Forum rules
The rules for this forum are different from all the others on this site.

2) If you are not sure if your topic is OK here, post it in the General Discussion forum; a moderator can then move it here if appropriate.
3) This forum is for advanced discussions, such as scientific, medical, reproductive, pathological, environmental, etc.
4) PROOF, FACT, and BACK IT UP are three things to keep in mind when posting.
5) Comments need to add to the discussion. “Good job”, “I agree”, or “Nice skink” etc, do not add to the discussion and are not allowed here. If stating an opinion, back it up with what experiences have led to that opinion.

But they are all eating well and look healty.
I feed them dogfood with vegetables included , sometimes banana , mango , rosebeetle larvea ( dola's ) , morio worms , waxlarvea's.

Fruits, especially banana, and egg tend to cause nasty, runny, smelly poops.

When you say diarrhoea do you mean true diarrhoea where the faeces is in liquid form, or are the faeces soft and partially or fully formed?

If it is true diarrhoea then they will be also dehydrating and losing valuable electrolytes which need urgent replacement. It would be best if a sample could be analysed a soon as possible to determine if a bacterial infection such as an overgrowth of clostridium is the cause.
There are 10 kinds of people in the world; those who understand binary and those who do not.
