In order for any of us to help figure out why your guy isnt eating, we need to know your cage size, set up, temps, substrate, water?, etc...Off of what you said, get rid of an orange light--frillies are diurnal and want it bright--you need a heat lamp (white) and a uvb light (or get a mercury vapor lamp to accomodate both). You want the basking zone in the high 90s and enough space in the tank to get far away from that temp. Make sure he/she is hydrated by spraying and having a bath area for soaking. Water and heat are going to be the two main things for appetite stimulation. Also keep in mind that every reptile takes a few to acclimate to a new environment. Try not to handle this guy for at least a week until he's eating well.
