So my guy is round 6 months old. His temp is around 96 and he has a 100 UVB. I am not sure the size of the cage but it's a tall screen cage.
He was eating meal worms and crickets. He hasn't ate in a week but will take water. He dosent seem to have any straight to hang on to his branches. He has fallen off his tree last week. When I pick him up he will lay on me and close his eyes falling asleep.
I am really geting worried.
This all began when I moved him from my bedroom to the living room. This color is always green.

Why are you posting multiple threads about the same thing? Best to keep everything in on thread.

Many people have had the same problem so don’t feel like the Lone Ranger, but it is best to use a linear UVB lamp. The compact or “regular” lamps just don’t produce a high enough UVB source for chameleons. No one here on the forums knows why Zoomed and Exoterra sells these lamps for chameleons knowing that they just aren’t good enough but they do!!! If you can it would be best to get a linear UVB lamp and fixture for your little guy. Also what is your supplement regiment?

Mealworms are a big no as they can cause impaction. Are you dusting your insects? If so, with what?

In your pics you have a Zoomed retipfogger wich is very good to maintain night time humidity but during the day you will need a true mister system. Unless you are around all day to hand spray? MistKing is the best but if your on a budget then the Zoomed Moonsoon is a cheaper option. It’s best to use a real mister during the day to create enough moisture so your little guy can drink from the drops on the leaves.

Yeah you have a fogger so you will need a tru mister for your little guy. But don’t get rid of your fogger its excellent to keep the humidity right during the night when your not misting.
