What do you think about my setup?

Add more branches and vines, mostly horizontal, everywhere. Do have any way of measuring temps? When you get the cash flow, buy a t5HO linear uvb bulb and fixture and an automated mister. Could you fill out the ask for help form? Did you read the veiled chameleon caresheet here?

I thought i got too much vines and branches So add more okey, i cant buy misting system so i spray his cage 3+ times a day plus dripping system humidity is +-60 all the time,on the top branches is around 30C on the bottom is around 23-24C.That linear UVB litght is it that much different?

The compact fluorescents produce less uvb light in a smaller area. It’s not a fix right away, but when you get the cash flow, it’s best to upgrade

Ok, so
Veiled chameleon , male , 9months old
In my care for 6 months
I handle him once a week
I feed him mostly crickets ,sometimes dubia roaches and superworms,about 10 crickets a day but sometimes he dont want to eat day or two.I feed him from cup
Im using some basic calcium without D3 and reptivite with D3,im using calcium everyday and reptivite every 2 weeks
I spray his cage 3 or more times a day until water drops from leaves and also using dripping system i saw him drinking maybe 4 times but i read they drink when the owner isnt in the room..so i hope he drinks
His poo is dark brown and his pee is white sometimes a bit yellowish when it dries
He was never tested for parasites.
I bought him on animal show from some private owner. Little story, i went there for panther chameleon and i saw him next to the tree with a lot of veiled babies he was dark and scared in plastic box so i bought him from regret and now i love him so much, but back to the info. I actually dont know anything about his history.
His cage is screen 60 x 45 x 90 cm.
Exo terra basking spot bulb 100w
UVB 10.0 13w ReptiPlanet
Light is from 8am to 8pm
Cage floor is about 25C and top is about 32C
At night temperature is about 20C
I have classic exo terra thermometer and hydrometer
Humidity is about 60-70%
I use two schefflera arboriculas
The cage is located at corner of the room next to the door there is no wind
Top of the cage is at 2 meters from the ground. And i live in middle of Europe,Czech republic
And the problem is he dont eat that much..

He’ll eventually need a 60 by 60 by 120 cm screen cage. Try getting different types of feeders and take him to the vet. Are you gutloading?

He needs way more branches and vines, mostly horizontal, everywhere! Mount his feeding cup higher up in his cage
