Your husbandry sounds great! I don't think I see a single thing you could do any better. Your little guy sounds like he's in great hands :)

Hi! :) All looks good, including your chameleon. Only one thing that I see that you should probably change and that is amount you’re feeding him. Veileds can very easily become obese, so you need to reduce his feeders to about 4-5 every other day.
