Your temps are great, so thats not the problem.

For substrate I like to use sphagnum and leaf litter. I used to use the bricks of dirt sold at most pet stores, but the frogs really seemed to hate it when it would stick to them. So I switched to sphagnum (orchid moss works well also, you can find both at home depot, lowes ect) and leaf litter.

I have five whites, and every single one of them changes color, for no obvious reason. Possible causes are temp, humidity, diet, time of day, and camoflauge, but keep in mind that some whites are naturally a purplish or brown color, so if your frog is darker and seems healthy there's nothing to worry about.

If he is just eating crickets thats fine, superworms are high in fat so he's not missing anything but lipids if he doesn't eat them.

If you are dusting with calcium it should have D3 as well, I use Rep-cal becuase the calciumhosperous ratio is better than a lot of other supplements out there.

Do you have any pics of the little guy?
