I suggest trying different types of food out too. If I were you I'd try ground turkey, superworms, scrambled eggs, or maybe a live pinkey mouse. If he won't eat that I'd even try goldfish; mine love them. I can imagine how they could get parasites from live goldfish; whereas if you feed ground turkey, frozen pinkie mice, and superworms I don't think you'd have to worry about it. Try to feed him by putting the food under his nose when he's basking if he doesn't freak out. He might still be adapting to his new home, and you just got the substrate on May 2nd. It's normal for them to stay buried a lot, for most of the day at least. It could be that he's thinking about hibernating. Not much you could do in that case but to leave him be until he comes out. I had faith that's what mine were doing and they came out 5 months later fine and dandy.
