    hi so I recently bought a AFT around 2 weeks ago. So far I’ve offered him Dubai roaches but he shows no interest bt once I show waxworms that’s all he eats. I contacted the store I bought him from and the guy said that they only fed them wax worms. I wanted to know if this is ok and if not how do I get him to eat something else?

    No, waxworms are very high in fat, by itself it's the worst junk food. Plus no one insect can provide the complete nutrition needed for any reptile. Try gut loaded crickets, and maybe mash up some waxworms and cover the dubias with them. Essentially "scenting" them. Try to get your aft used to eating a wide variety of feeders for it's health.
