How many brown crickets.

At that age I would steer well clear of wax worms, danger of getting him exclusively feeding on those as he gets a taste for them, which health wise isn't good

Has he got a uvb in the viv? What is the basking temperature? How long before lights out did you feed him? It could just be due to the stress of the move but if you could answer above q's we could hopefully help you more.

Waxworms are ok as an OCCASIONAL treat once he gets older

Slightly raise those hot end temps to 105 - 110, will aid digestion if only slightly, other than that all looks spot on to me
