This is weird it seems he is very hungry , just gave him loads of crickets and locust..and was trying to eat the glass whilst i was coating them and getting them rdy he has now perked up a little and underneath his lamp.

Another question is i brought a ceramic light fitting and a black heat emitter seramic one was told there were better as last longer, but do they need a light basking lamp or is a heat emitter ok to use ?

I'd need a photo of the spots to tell if there is a problem or not although it's most likely nice new colours after shedding. They often go off food during a shed and then of course their appetite comes back with a bang afterwards which sounds like what he did for you. You were told correctly in that ceramics do last longer than spotlights. However dragons prefer basking under a bright light and often don't recognise CHE's as a heat source, so I prefer to recommend standard household spotlights (RO80) cheap and effective.
