What strength of UVB bulb do you have, and how far away is it from his basking branch? His UVB bulb should be as long as his cage, so get a 4’ one to use. It can go diagonally over his current cage and straight across his new cage once it’s built
Okay will do when new cage I will defiantly get way longer lol here’s the one I have


DBDPet Reptisun 14" T5HO Terrarium Hood Light Fixture & Free 5.0 UV-B Bulb​

His basking could be a little colder at 80*F (measured with a digital thermometer with a probe, with the probe placed where the top of his back is when he’s on his basking branch
Okay I did the the way of measuring temp and I will raise the bulb on more inch to make it cooler

He needs veiled-tested live plants way sooner than later. A vet bill is much more expensive than some plants. Could you ask your parents to help out with that?
Okay so I asked and they said sure they can buy them but since we’re going on vk tommorwo they said after vk bc money is tight

You want either a Zoo Med ReptiSun 5.0 or Arcadia 6% T5 HO UVB bulb, as those are the trusted brands. You’ll place it so the distance from the UVB bulb to the basking branch is 8-9” away

It’s repashy superfoods calcium plus do I need to change if so I will imdeitly my dad said earlier this month since I am so invested in Yoshi he will buy the crickets and supplements when every I need
The LOD formula and the Calcium plus formula are fine. But should only be used two times a month say the 1st and the 15th. You will not supplement with any other multivitamins or D3 though using either of these. So it would just be the repashy 2 times a month and then at all the other feedings the calcium without D3. :)
