Also did you have him seen by an experienced reptile vet yet?

Fogger should not be in the cage. Should be removed and only run at night. moisture+heat from lights= potential for Respiratory infection.

What is the white stuff in the bowl at the bottom?

The white stuff in the bottom is a small tray the magnet feeding bowl came with so worms don’t get out

I put some tuff napkins in between the pothos plant then stabbed twigs to give home more moving space and so it could cover my Cham from eating soil

So you want to remove the whole unit... It should not be in the cage. It also needs to be a cool mist humidifier. We use ones that a hose can be attached to then the end of the hose gets attached to the top of the enclosure to pour into it.

You should not use any heat emitter at night unless it is colder then 50 degrees in the house. They have to have a temp drop. Also lights are only on for 12 hours then 12 hours of total darkness. This includes lights that are on in the room.
As far as the fogger... There are lots of different ones you can get I happened to just get one that was for reptiles https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B076D3PL1H/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o08_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1
@CamoChameleonsHuman what do you use for a fogger.

Crickets wax worms horn worms super worms dubia roach
great so just make sure that you are not feeding wax worms as a main meal... these are more for a treat here and there. They are high in fat and not a good source of nutrients. Basically they are cake for chams.
