The UVB bulb is a T 5 or a T 8 ? Distance plays a huge roll in where its at on tank etc......... also he needs to be able to sit directly under that UVB ---- you need to start feeding him if hes not eating at all --- get some Repeshy grub pie or blend some collard turnip or kale or whatever you were feeding him along w/ some crickets in a blender add some water and feed by syringe .5ml 3 times per day -- go slow so he does not aspirate ----

It’s a T8


He’s had a big drink in his bath today and ate .5ml of winter squash and cricket. But he still has been acting lethargic and doesnt want to be handled. Took him outside for 15 Minutes before feeding him

The T 8 should be inside the tank w / no cover over the bulb - needs to be exposed for best rays - approx 8-10 inches from basking decor - he needs to be able to sit directly under it -- did you get a digital probe to get an actual basking temp?
