Did you get a reflector for the UVB ? Its good hes eating -- are you offering any salads? What kind of worms? See if this website will help w/ a reflector for your UVB Arcadia T8 Fluorescent ReflectorsHi,here is an update. He still won't eat by himself but he isn't spiting them out anymore! He ate 10 worms yesterday and today he ate 7! Here is how i found him this morning.
I still have aluminum foil but am looking for a reflector. That website does not ship to my country unfortunatly. I think super worms,dubias and flour worms? are his diet currently. I offered some carrots and apples but he won't even look at them.
Offer greens mustard collard turnip or kale along w/ squash like zucchini yellow -- here is link to the nutrition websiteI still have aluminum foil but am looking for a reflector.

Ok go look and I hope that helps and you can get something from one of them --- the one worm on top is a super worm the one in the middle looks disgusting and I am not sure what it is and the other one is some sort of beetle I am gonna have another person on here look -- @AHBDHere are the worms. I will try to get the reflector from one of those sites and thank you for the nutrition website!
He eats 5 in the morning and 5 in the afternoon. The temp is 38 and he can climb but usually spend his in the middle (after feeding he basks).O.K, that size is fine but don't feed him TOO many at once and be sure he's able to bask at a warm enough temperature, around 38 -40 celsius [105 f. ] Is he pooping regularly ? And can he climb up to bask ? It's good that his front legs work.
I tried just dubias for a month and he could only eat 2 before he starts spiting them out. If the dubia is bigger than the space between his eyes,i split it into two. Or he just eats the body/lower parts and spits out the headBearded dragons and other lizards get spoiled on mealworms, it's like candy to them. I don't know maybe the dubias are too large or are they also very small ? I wonder if you don't give him any mealworms for a day or so he might go back to eating dubias.
