Sometimes young chams can get overwhelmed by too much motion. When they don't eat and we start to worry, we tend to put too many insects in the cage hoping to get them started. The little cham will just end up watching all the motion but not pick out any individual to shoot at. I agree...go ahead and put it in its screen cage with lots of cover. The small space may be distracting and confusing. To keep food from getting lost in the larger setup, I've found that melleri eat well out of a larger plastic box or small critter keeper bin. Put the feeders in with some fresh gutload and wedge the box in the branches below where the cham tends to sit. It can climb down to shoot from the rim of the box when it is ready.
