first thing i can tell is that the diet is not up to par. you are feeding foods that should be offered as snacks, not as a staple diet. you should be feeding curly endive(often called chickory), escarole, dandelion greens, radicchio, etc

there are some good care sheets here and on the urowiki as well. sounds like lack of nutrients and possible lack of proper UVB to me. What kind of UVB bulb are you using? My advise would be to be using a MVB from reptileuv.com they are the best option around. Provide proper heat and UVB levels.

Also, you didnt mention anything about night temps.. you said its never below 85.. at night there should be no lights on at all and should be around 70F or so. if your house gets too cold you should use a ceramic heat emitter which will produce heat, but no visible light to bring up the night temps. hope this helps a bit
