Sunken eyes, and chaotic eating? Why?

Postby noncorrect » Thu Jun 04, 2020 8:56 am

Hi, this is Merse (hungarian name). He's 3 months old, and is with me since two weeks. Last week I had to go out for a few days, so my sister was taking care of him. I got back this monday, and I immediately noticed, how he had this "lazy eye" thing going on. Searched for it, and the web said that it could be dehydration. But since I'm home, i make sure that he drinks 100 ml per day (50-50 per feedings), and his eyes haven't changed. What am I doing wrong?
He's otherwise energetic, not lethargic and I see healthy poops every day. His eating is a bit chaotic, sometimes he eats 17 crickets in one feeding, and sometimes he only eats 6 in a whole day. Doesn't really likes greens (tried parsley, dandelion, carrot, tomato, apple, lettuce, cucumber, and the only thing he even at least licked, was strawberry).

(couldn't figure out, how to insert pics)
Lives in a 100x60x65 cm (390 litres ~103 gallon) tank, with arcadia euro range desert 10.0 UVB light, and arcadia basking solar flood 100W. Temperature is 40 celsius (104 fahrenheit) under the basking lamp, and 30-35 celsius (95 fahrenheit) on the cooler side.
Please help. :(

His eyes look fine to me --- but his cool side is too hot -- it needs to be around 80 or 80's -- nite time not below 65 - lettuce, cucumber I would not feed -- hes getting a lot of water w/ you feeding him 100 ml per day --- I would get some worms for him to lure him to the salad bowl -- get a glass or ceramic bowl one that worms cant get out of and get some BSFL - nutri grubs calci worms or phoenix worms all the same thing - add as many as you want to the salad first thing in the morning do it so he sees you do this - wash your greens before serving and he will get water that way - you can use as many as you want the BSFL are a good staple feeder - you can also get some morio worms and use them as well 1-3 -- if your gut loading your insects he will get hydration from them as well - silk worms are also a good staple feeder -- here is a website for nutrition http://www.beautifuldragons.com/Nutrition.html ignore the kale thing its a good staple feeder
is your UVB inside the tank or on top of screen?
