Oh, and I love your tank :D
Oh yay! Someone with scale advice!
He actually IS a dragon (a cull pet store dragon, but a dragon none the less). However after a really bad ammonia spike about a month back his scales just thinned out :( I've been trying to get them back to that thickness they used to have, so I'll definitely try the leaves. Where can you buy Indian almond leaves?
Here he is when I got him, thick scales and all-
