Hi, Be careful of the one that's getting the nose rub. That can get really bad if they continue to jump and smash that already raw nose. Put some neopsorin (without pain medicine) that can be harmful to lizards, so use the ORIGINAL only on it.

Sometimes changing the stuff around in the tank, makes them more observant, they seem to investigate the tank and all the stuff in different places. Takes their mind off jumping for awhile, lol. Just move things every couple days and see if it helps. Sounds crazy but does help.

I have never closed off the sides or put paper over them and I have had many wild caught through the years. They eventually stop (glass dancing) and if they jump up to the top , I never really worried my lights were on the outside and I figured they were safe they just needed to jump back down when they were ready.
When they get used to you , you can let them out and let them run a bit. Block off your tub drain and put a towel in the tub and let them run in there sometimes times. They are safe, they can not get out or get lost under anything. Sit down hang your arm in and let them get used to your hand. The tamer they get the more calm they become, the less jumping, and smashing into the glass they will do.
