Hey based on these pictures does Mo look normal along with is droppings?

i came home about an hour ago and he looked like this. im assuming hes stressed about something im not to sure tho. He went back to his normal green colour when i misted him and his home. i did get locked out of my house last night causeing the lights to stay on for about 16-18 hours yesturday. he was a nice green when i left in the morning and now looks like this.

he has a uvb 5.0
100w basking bulb
mix of fake plants with a potho plant
i mist him 2-5 times a day
i put 4-6 crix in a day usually 1 or 2 left over from the day befroe
the crix are feed apple,cucumber,potato, dry food from the store( the guy makes it in store)
the have multivitamins 1 a week and calsium with d3 3 times a week
temp sits between 80-85 during the day and 50-60 for humidity

i do not like how Mo looks in the first picture. is there a reason why his eyes are closed?

how old is the fecal in the second picture? it looks very dry. there is more white than yellow in his urates, which is fine and indicates he is hydrated. if it is a fresh fecal dropping, i would say that i do not like the looks of his poop, but his urates look fine.

the 3rd picture he looks a lot better, but IMHO his dark colors are representing stress, or he is possibly too cool and using the dark coloration to warm his body up. is he ever lighter in color?

i ask that you please fill out this form by copy and pasting the txt into this thread. thank you.

i would have to agree, the dark color with my guy always indicates something wrong or stressed out. ie spraying lol. would do as sugg, and fill out the how to ask for help form.

well the first thing i see is your suppliments u need to be dusting your feeders daily with calcium WITHOUT d3, and only use calcium w/d3 twice a month as well a multi vitamin is reccomended once a month. also 100w basking bulb is pretty high, the basking area should be like 95deg MAX, and as far as humidity goes try to steady it out 45 to 80%, u can wrap plastic sheating over some of the screen to help, as well the 100w bulb is prob burning of the humidity

the reason its a 100w bulb is because the basement here isnt exactly warm enough i dont hit 90'f let alone 95'f and thanks for the advice with the calcium aand the humidity any other tips??
