The week before Xmas I moved him into the bigger aquarium and used rocks from outside(boiled) for caves and climbing, he bites on these alot.
I'm not an expert but I think the black light might be the problem. From what I've read it gives off a lot of UVA, which can be harmful in large amounts, and not much UVB. First thing I would do is get rid of the black light and get a ReptiSun 10.0 strip light.
Other than that, I hope someone else can help.
