New Tegu Owner ..... suggestions

I purchased an 18 month old red tegu two weeks ago. I'm not a completely inexperienced reptile owner as I've owned an iguana, I have an adult savannah monitor and several snakes.

The store had this tegu since he was a baby, and claimed he wouldn't eat any fruits. I've been able to get him to eat kiwi, bananas and apples. His diet consists of those things, earth worms, meal worms, and crickets rights now. I am starting a colony of hissing cockroaches, but that will be a while.

Anyhow, any tips and ideas on what I should do to ensure a happy and healthy "Fluffy?"

I'm attaching a picture of Fluffy. We just got him home and I kept him in an empty 55 gallon aquarium for the night. Now he's in a nicely decorated 55 gallon which I'll post pictures of later. His perminent enclosure is under construction.
