Normal poop?

Hello, my beardie has had some orange colored poop recently and I’m wondering if it means I’m giving him too much calcium. I just Bought a brand new uvb and put it in a couple days ago (reptisun 10.0 t5). I’m not sure his exact age but I have had him for 7 months. On another note, after only having super worms for two weeks he stopped eating protein. He is starting to eat more roaches but he does not eat as many as he used to (20-30 small-medium a day). He eats his greens daily though. He now weighs in the 410 gram range and has not grown in a month or so (nor shed). Is he going through a phase? Should I wait it out?

Also, I usually do calcium with d3 three day a week, calcium without d3 two days a week, and multi vitamins two days a week. I have not followed this the best the past 2+ weeks because of his eating changes (and I have been giving calcium most days that he wants to eat).
Poop when I had the old uvb light:

Poop after new uvb and slightly less calcium:

Also this poop is dry because it’s older

Hi there, you might cut back on the Cal. with D3 to 1-2 X a week at most , very lightly and plain Cal. w/out D3 just 2 days a week. All dusting should be light and only on one meal. If he eats 20-30 insects a day , just dust half of them. His poos look O.K, [ the first one might indicate too much calcium powder use ] offer him extra hydration with a syringe or spray bottle , dripping water slowly on his snout.
