You want to hand tame him- get your hands in the tank as much as you can- feeding by hand bsfl is good - he needs to learn trust and be patient w/ him- as long as he's eating a little basking pooping your good- his appetite will increase as he gets more acclimated to the tank and surroundings
Ok. Finally got it good. Highest basking spot is 115. And everything around is 104, 110...so on. And I just put in the reptisun 10.0 uvb tube. I'll keep you posted on the feedings. :)

Ok watch that 115 temp hes not going to bask there if he does it wont be for long its too hot but if hes got other temps hes good -- were you using a 12% bulb ?

I just wanted to say, wow. What a difference proper uvb and temperatures do. He went from being slightly lethargic sitting up in his spot all day, to a spunky little lizard! He's running around, chasing bugs, and being adorable! I moved his decor over slightly so the highest spot is only reaching 112.

Yes it's amazing w/ what proper uvb placement and distance and surface basking temps can make- I don't think he will sit long under the 112- so watch where he sits for basking

Yes there's only one spot that is 112. Everywhere else ranges from like 102-110.
