I suspect the reason for the fall is the onset of Metabolic Bone Disease.
A chameleon is not scared of climbing and is part of their insti nctto climb to stay away from danger.
UVB and calcium is most important/ The UVB metabolizes the calcium into D3 in the body.Your UVB light at 6 months is nit putting out UVB rays the dragon gets weak.
,, I can locate some for you wit a State or Country.
In the interim, there are steps you can take:
Get a new Reptisun 10,9 by Zoomed. UVB bulb
Raise the basking temp to 95
Keep the ambient temp in the upper 70s
Give the Chameleon a warm soak and add some calcium powder to the soak
Take the chameleon out for natural sunlight 3xs a day for 15 minutes. Natural sunlight is a healer.
See the Herp Vet for an exam.
The Chamelon Needs to be no more than 12 inches from the UVB light to get adequate sunlight.
