Do you still have him in the tree setup? Does he have better access to water than he did? Is he eating well? Sleeping during the day? What are his basking and ambient temps? Is he still exposed to your other jackson constantly?

never he is very active

baskig 85ish
amb. 75-80

Is he still exposed to your other jackson constantly?
yes they are sticks and no... he falls off of everyting screen sticks plants... habe see him fall yet this evening so hopefully he is better
Are the sticks painted green? Cage frame painted? Possible lead around? Kryptonite? (sorry, I couldn't resist the last one. )
i think its more of a stain.. but they have been in the cage for months and never had a problem with him or my other cham. yes but the cage is made for chameleons i dont think they would paint with anything bad for them.no lead.

he is opening his mouth alot...even when the lights are off i dont belive he is to hot.. i dunno hes seems to be doing etter today.. ill keep you up dated
If he is doing any open mouthed breathing, then he needs to be taken to a vet. This is a sign of an upper respiratory infection (along with a few other ailments). These infections are nothing to mess with and usually by the time they start showing signs, the infection is pretty well advanced. The falling and weird pooping just helps confirm that something is not right with his health.

Please, don't delay medical treatment for your guy.
