Hey there. So room temp water only for misting. You have a little boy. Start reading through every module at this link to learn correct husbandry https://chameleonacademy.com/chameleon-husbandry-program-getting-started-with-chameleons/

If you would like to do a full husbandry review then you would copy and paste the form below into your reply and then answer all the questions with detail. :)

Yes i am open to any suggestions that are cost effective. I'm sorry if i didn't make myself clear or sounded a little rude. i will definitely get all the supplements and the UVB bulb for my chameleon, because i did not know about some of these stuff and i've been researching to learn. but i'm happy i found this amazing community that helps each other with their different ideas on how to correct the issues that some of us are making with our new reptile friends. i will place the picture of my chams feet below

All good!! Just want the best for you and your chameleon. Glad you're open to feedback and making some changes to ensure his health. :)

If you do the form that Beman pasted in the thread she'll give you feedback. She's the best!!
