Thank you for your reply Lisa.

I'm almost positive it's a male due to the crest (about 1/4" high), large bright dewlap (which he often shows), and the amount of times he head-bobs/push-ups.

In terms of changes in the tank, I changed the light fixture at the top to something more convenient, and now use a better UVB tube.

The temperature and humidity is still the same as it was before.

I have the bark substrate, and underneath that I have the reptile carpet. He's now starting to lift the carpet up from the corner (it's like pointing about an inch in the air now), and he's taking bark and burying it under that lifted corner. He's done this on two opposing corners of the tank (rear right, and front left).

When he does lift the carpet, he starts "looking" for something, he's scanning the area under it. I wonder if he might be looking for food, or possibly looking for a way out. He also recently started hanging out on the ceiling of the tank too sometimes.
