Are you using a flourescent uvb bulb or incandescent bulbs.
The uvb rays need to be from a flourescent bulb.

Sounds good. Is that him in the avator? If so he is very handsome. I wish mine had more blue.

From your avatar and signature, I assume you are asking about veiled chameleons. I assume this animal is a sub-adult or older.

my regular cage temp is 75F and my basking temp is 90F
This is not good. Veiled chameleons need basking temps around 100F+. Proper temps are crucial.

95F-105F try to get your basking temp somewhere in this range

How long have you cared for him? If you have cared for him since a baby, then you most likely don't need my advice on basking temps. :)
