Glad to hear he's getting more active. There is an adjustment period for dragons recently purchased where they may not eat much or anything. Usually its about a week so since yours is getting more active...sounds like he's getting used to his new environment. Just wanted to make sure the husbandry etc is not causing unnecessary stress.

The 10 gallon will be alright for maybe a month at the most..depending on what size he is now and how fast he grows. I always felt 10 gallon is just too small and the need to upgrade to something larger often puts another 'move' stress on the dragon, when moving to a 25-35 gal long tank makes a good home till the dragon reaches about 14" in overall length or usually once they are around 8 months of age (or younger if they are fast growers). Then its safe to move to the adult/life long cage of at least 4'x2' of floor space (height can fall between 18-24"
