Its going to take more than a couple days to get a dragon eating after its been moved around a bit. I assume he arrived fairly recently at the pet store and now he has a second move to your home. So two transfers plus being housed with 12 other dragons initially...adds alot of stress. It may take a week before its eating normally.

First off, I would keep him at your house till he's eating well and puts on weight/size so you may have him for at last a couple weeks. Second, detail your setup.

Third, I would offer phoenix worms, small crickets and maybe small butterworms and silkworms. The worms are easier to catch and can be left in a shadow dish without much worry of them moving about the cage and pestering your dragon.

Keep him hydrated as well by misting with luke warm water or eye dropper. Offer food 3-5 times a day as well and keep finely chopped greens available all day.
