Right now super worms, until I can get turnip greens and crickets, ex o terra 100 watt, and reptisun 5.0 inside the cage, the basking temps are around 100, don't have thermometer right now plan getting one soon(just haven't had the time).

How do you know your basking temps are 100 if you dont have a thermometer?

Proper temperatures are arguably the most important part of a dragons husbandry. it's something you have to know and it's the easiest thing to get right! I highly suggest stopping by a petstore on your way home one day and picking up a digital with probe end they are cheap now. Or order online if you have no time.

How far is basking w/ Uvb-- the 5.0 is equivalent to a T 8 and should be 6-8 inches-- you really need to get an accurate basking temp so we can help better-- the lighting in the tank is crucial to the health of the dragon

It's just an estimation, the uv b is pretty close to his basking spot,like 10 inches, I plan on stopping by and getting an thermometer, I had one but I kept it one the floor, and he kept using the bathroom on it so I had to throw it away.

So I am guessing his basking temp is not high enough --- make sure you get a digital probe would be good and a Infrared heat gun as well - the probe can be hooked to the side of the tank w/ the suction cup that way he cant poop on it --- the temp gun would be used for his actual basking spot where he sits --

Ok, I'll rather order one on Amazon or get it at the store when I'm out in town
