So your tank is a 30 gallon -- your going to need to upgrade that tank real soon to a 40 gallon at the least and I would recommend a 75-120 gallon--- my advice is if you can get stuff off Amazon try that other than that I really cant help you --- what ever your using for a UVB if its a coil get rid of it and look at what I posted earlier --- look for that fixture and bulb --- but you need a bigger tank - basking temps need to be 105 -110 F for a baby and 95-110 F for a juvie/ adult --- unless those things I have posted are not correct they wont eat -- if they are good then there is something else going on --

I'll try and get the UVB ASAP in the mean time I'll be taking him out in the garden every 15-30 min

And make sure your getting basking temps w/ a digital.probe thermometer- no stick ons they are inaccurate--- outside is good till you get a UVB- let us know what you get -- T 5's and T 8' s are different strengths- the Zoo Med fixture comes w/ a 5.0 bulb which would be perfect for your 30 gallon tank--- when you upgrade you want a 10.0 bulb
