Default Emerald tree skink help!

Hallo how you guys doing? I am new here and have some question with my juvenile Emerald tree skink.

What is the basking temperature and humidity level they required and how often do I need to mist his cage?

Can I use zoomed eco earth for the substrate?

He eats repashy grub pie and different favorite of CGD right now so do I need to offer him some live insects also?

Yes, you need to feed insects too. Basking temp around 85f. Spray once a day or every couple of days. Eco earth is fine.

How often do I need to offer insects and which kind of insect I can chose beside of crickets?

The basking temp right under the heat lamp is around 88 -90f is that too hot but he seem doing fine to bask there. The heat lamp is a zoomed single nano dome with a 35w halogen bulb. He is only 3months old now and is only 3" from nose to the end of his tail so i put him in a 12x12x12 cage for now but I DEFINITELY going to put him in a large size cage when he gets bigger.

Crickets & locusts every 2-3 days. You could offer a dish of mealworms, if he'll come down to eat them.

Basking temp is fine, as is your set up while he's still small.

I am living in the North America the only choice of the live insect are crickets, mealworms, superworms, silkworms, hornworms. We dont have locusts and dubia roaches. He do go down to eat the Grub Pie on the feeding dish and drink water from the water bowl everyday.
