Help new beardie that’s 8 years old

Hello
I just inherited an 8 year old male beardie
I am wondering if he is dehydrated or not he drinks water in the bath and his temps seem to be fine idk what the hell I am doing and the more I Google the more I get confused
I attached pics to show his body
I have him eating crickets greens the calcium supplements meal worms also
His poop is green but not formed so idk if it’s because I just got him or what

Can you give us a bit more detail about his enclosure, like what brand and wattage lights are you using, the size and anything else you can tell us.

He doesn't look dehydrated but he does look thin. How often do you feed him and how much at a time? Does he seem eager to eat?

He’s in a 50 gallon enclosure with a uvb light a basking light 150 watts and a day heat lamp also because I live in Ohio and it’s just cold the temps are in range
I just never have cared for one this old or this color
He eats everything
I been doing fresh greens everyday kale collards arugula and red bell pepper super worms and crickets and I also offer him the vita gives and the dry adult food doing daily soaks to clean him up and keep him hydrated I literally have only had him a week trying to be ahead of the game

What kind of uvb? Tube or coil please? Extremely important

Hello,

Bless him, he doesn't look too bad overall, just a bit thin. The color is a normal morph/phase which is very common.
Yes, as Karrie inquired, it is very important to know the type/brand of UVB you are using for him. If you have an overall
picture of his tank setup too that is always helpful.
At least he is not picky about his eating, which makes it easy on you to get nutrition into him. I'm glad to hear he eats his
greens!

Hello!

The compact/coil type of light is a spiral shape & is very limited in UVB output as compared to the
long linear fluorescent tube bulb. If you are currently using a spiral type of bulb, we would highly
recommend upgrading to either the Reptisun 10 or the Arcadia D3 12%. They have two types of
tubes & one is the T8 which is the older verson & the T5 which is a high UVB output.
How are things going today?
