So Kaida has had diarrhea for the past few days and Im not sure why. I haven't changed anything with his diet. Spot clean everyday and change and clean his greens everyday.

His diet is collard greens, kale, and yellow squash. With his bugs being phoenix worms, mealworms, and dubia roaches.

He has a tube uvb and his basking light stays around 105F.

Hi there, how long have you had Kaida and was he from a store or breeder ? Can you take a pic the next time he poos ? Kaida is tiny, how far is he from the uvb tube and what brand + strength is it ? Is he eating his veggies daily ? That can cause diarrhea, especially squash, but parasites can as well.

Ive had him about a week and a half by now. Maybe two weeks.
He was from a store.
He's 12 to 13 inches away from his uvb. The brand is arcadia T5.
He seems to eat his veggies often but he mostly is eating various worms dipped in water right now otherwise.
That said it hasn't been as bad lately. Kind of a toss up on if he has a solid or not lately. He had a couple days of solids. But today he had diarrhea again.

It may be just normal stools from being well hydrated. Post a pic of the next one that concerns you.
