Skinny/Malnourished Red Ackie

Four weeks ago I purchased an adult red ackie male via FaunaClassifieds. The seller had explained he was thin but that he had always been a social lizard and a ravenous feeder. When I got him he was indeed skinny for an ackie but I figured I could fatten him up easily enough. He is in a 75 gallon aquarium with 15" of soil, with a slate basking platform marked at 147 degrees. Unfortunately he has been incredibly difficult to feed. I've tried crickets (which he vomited back up), superworms(ate at first now he ignores them) frozen fuzzies(ate two and now refuses), earthworms(ignores), and dubias (will eat medium one per day). I finally got him to eat a live fuzzy last Friday but now he won't eat anything. I can see his pelvis and I'm worried. Should I tried panacure or flagyl for parasites? Any and all help is greatly appreciated. Name:  image.jpg
