good luck, mike
Actually an 18x18 seems to have a larger area than a 24x12.

You seem to be using a lot of heat sources, make sure they're statted as it can quickly lead to overheating.

If he is a juvie I would expect him to be eating slightly more than that (although it depends on the size of the prey). Try feeding a variety as already mentioned.

I would also suggest that you don't keep a bowl of Repashy (or any supplement with D3) in all the time, it can lead to D3 overdose if they are attempting to self-supplement on the calcium. The bowl should contain calci-dust (or limestone flour).

Artisan has mentioned the rest.
