Hi your temps need to be up a bit, also dont give him too much spinach as this effects the calcium that is absorbed.

I know there is a big substrate debate but calcium sand is not always seen as the best for beardies so you might want to put it on something else, if h hasnt had a pooh for a few days try giving his tummy a rub in the bath if he doesnt do anything himself I found this works wth mine.
