setup: 2x2x3 glass side cage with vents on the front and back and a screen top, I also rigged a fan to push air through so it does circulate pretty well. the lights I have a a 5.0 uvb reptiglo spiral bulb and a regular 40 watt household bulb used for basking. the uvb bulb is sitting directly on the cage about 5 inches away from the nearest perch and the basking bulb is 11 inches away giving that it is much hotter. It stays a steady 85-90 during the day and 78-80 at night. 50-60% humidity (misting 3-4 times daily plus a dripper). I feed him D. Hydea fruit flies and I dust them with repticalcium (without D3) 2 times a week. He Was only 10 weeks old. He died this morning but what I don't understand is what could it have been...he literally was a peak condition 24 hours ago by that I mean he was walking around eating exploring and drinking then yesterday morning he was so lazy but when I misted his cage he moved around a bit but always went back to sleep.
