Odd poop and insanely watery?

Hey guys my Amber has been a bit odd lately she has been sleeping more than usual and her poop has changed. I have been a little generous on bug days this last week so she hasn't been eating greens. But I also have been gone for a period so she could be eating some when I'm not home I been putting BSFL in it. I am concerned due to the amount of water she just pooped out did the BSFL upset her belly or do they not carry a lot of water?

Hoping the green color means she has been eating greens or at least I hope that's why. I stepped out of the room came back and spelled something funky and this looks like a bomb went off

First pic is about a week or 2 ago and the second is today

I would say so ---what greens / veggies are you feeding her?

feed her some raw shredded sweet potato and see if that will firm up the poop
Sadly I haven't had luck with any veggies or fruit but I'll put some in it tomorrow should I skip a bug day? I feed them crickets on Wednesday's and Saturday's just weird she pooped like that

Lets go over the UVB and the surface basking temps
this is what you should be using a T 5 or a T 8 for UVB
surface temps should be 95-100 taken w/ a digital probe thermometer

I have a t5 the temps are low 90s with a IR heat gun I was told not to let it go any higher than 95-100

Ok you want 95-100 to start digestion - and please get a digital probe thermometer they are the most accurate and if your using a hammock for a basking decor piece its off - the IR gun cannot read off of hammocks

I have a resin base platform and I am looking for probe thermometers but I'm finding a lot of dual probes

Make sure its inside the tank w/ a distance of 12-15 inches directly above the basking decor
Would these probes work? Also this is the setup and distance I may need to lower it but it'll be very close if they are on the basking platform

You want distance from the basking platform - and yes those will work but you only need 2 of them-one for hot side of the tank and one for your cool side of the tank

When they are on the platform it is side by side at about 10 inches if they are on the hide it is 10-15 inches. I am looking to swap out platforms at some point so they can get closer or I can just lower the UVB. This is Chubbs enclosure and her basking
