Hi - quickest way to cover some of this is to direct you to stickies. For water/bathing see viewtopic.php?f=8&t=1372 vegetable food stuff is covered here http://www.beautifuldragons.com/Nutrition.html just chop any veg finely and feed raw. With frequency of feeding - veg should be provided daily early in the morning with 2 feeds of live during the day plus a top up if needed an hour or so before lights out. This can be cut back as he get bigger, stick with crix if you can as locusts are habit forming and mealworms should only be used as treats as they are fattening. Hope this helps - just read through the stickies on each section as they should answer most of your questions.

Rick
