Welcome to the forum-- Marley looks thin-- are you feeding her any bugs? Like dubia roaches or crickets? I would suggest you cut cabbage out of her diet- staple vegies are mustard collard and turnip greens- gr beans - squash yellow butternut zucchini- fruit can be offered no citrus! Her main diet should be bugs-- she needs the protein and the bugs should be dusted 5 x per week w? calcium D3 - vitamins 2 x per week-- she needs bugs fed 2 x per day as many as she can eat in 10-15 min-- can you post pics of her tank and lighting please

A temp reader meaning a infrared heat gun? Tank looks nice and you have a good UVB- the screen mesh is it a wide hole mesh screen or fine mesh? If its fine I would look at getting it inside the tank- even tho it is a T 5 and a strong bulb the UVB can be obstructed by the screen -- if you could get it inside the tank approx 10-11 inches from her basking area it would be better for her- other wise she looks good --

Its great she is eating them already--- she needs her bugs up until a year - eventually you will start feeding her bugs only 2 times per week still dusted w/ the calcium and the vitamins alternating between the 2 - and her salad every day---
