If your house is above 65 degrees at night, you do not need any night lights.
If you just got your guy, they sometimes take a few days to acclimate and will not eat. Just give him/her time and try to limit stress as much as possible. Also keep him well hydrated. Covering the sides should help.
As for frilling under the basking light that is typical behavior for thermoregulation. The fact that your guy is up basking is much better than one that is on the ground hiding.
Keep up the spraying and make sure there is a water dish big enough for soaking and your guy should start eating soon. I would not force feed.
good luck

:I have a 240v 50 watt spot light and a daylight on during the day for 12 hours. But how should i keep the night temp. warm? does it means i have to on the basking light at night too ?
:Don't my frillie have to sleep ?

:And also, My frill don't seem to be interested in the meanworms and crickets i gave him, it has not eaten for 3 days.(starting on that day i bought him home)
:Can someone please advise me wat to do ? Is it a good method to soak him in warm water? If so, for how long? Or maybe to force food into his mouth?
:Btw, I learned that Frill are somethimes quite shy, thus i cover up the tank with newspaper. I can sometimes see it frill While basking under the light, does frilling in this case means anything?
