Suddenly Fussy Eater

My beardie is about 3 months old and has suddenly been very difficult to get to feed. He's showing a TON of energy over the past week and has been very difficult to sit still and eat his dubias. He's always eaten his dubias and has only just now been difficult. I was wondering if this is something i should be worried about?

His tank is a 4x2x2 Zen habitat with his temps at 105-110 for basking. around 85-90 ambient on hot side and 75-80 ambient on cool side. He has a HO 10.0 Reptisun UVB mounted to the inside of his tank at the bank to provide a nice UVB gradient. I'm not quite sure what could be wrong. His last shed was about two weeks ago but he doesn't look too dull yet so I'm not sure if he is about to start his next shed.

Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated!

He might be tired of dubias - have you tried BSFL or maybe some crickets - I am not hot on crickets but you could try some- is he eating his salads? I would get some large BSFL and add them to the tops of his salads I would only feed a few at a time so he eats them slowly sometimes if they eat them to fast they have a tendency of coming out whole undigested -- www.symtonbsf.com DO NOT dust them - he will eat a lot of them if they are the main staple - like 50 or so -- try that and see if that helps being hes so young he should have a really good appetite and all your lighting and temps look good

He's always been a bit picky with his salads and avoids them most days but he's always eaten his dubias. (usually 30-40 1/2 a day over 3 feedings) Now however he just seems to have a ton of energy and won't sit still enough to eat! I will try out some crickets tonight as we can get them easily and depending on how fussy he stays with his roaches I'll give BSFL a try.

Thanks for the input :)
