i was offered a water dragon that was not doing well in the midst of the DC snow storms. He is a year old and is not much larger than the babies sold in the pet store. He had been to the vet for not eating. I was told he did not eat any greens or fruit and came in a 50 gallon tank. He arrived in a broken 25 gallon tank with a heat light. He could be easily picked up and was weak.

I put him in a 50 gallon tank with a UVB light and plants to hide under and climb on. He eats any green and fruit I feed him. He loves super worms and meal worms. He doesn't go after the crickets as much.

He now runs and doesn't like to be picked up. He is stronger.
How much should he be eating and is there anything I forgot?

I did put a large water bowl in there and a small water dish.
