Try handling him a little less. Just once or twice/week, ...if that much. Most young dragons don't like being handled. It's not important to keep them tame at this stage. It'll happen naturally.

Too much handling can cause stress at this age. They use up energy they need for growing. It can also cause them to drop off or stop eating altogether.

They mellow out as they get older. Have some patience. When he no longer scurries around everytime you reach in the tank, you can handle him more. But right now is not the best time.
