they should grow fast with good care
toes are falling off from the shed constricting the toes so they dont get blood flow,humidity is too low so the shed cant get off.
for the mouth rot i would ask the waterdragon forum, they know what to do.

The toes could be a couple different things. It may be lack of humidity - if itís too dry the basilisk wonít shed properly and may lose toes/claws in the process. Depending on the furnishings in the enclosure it also may be getting itís claws caught up in say a screen or cloth or something. When they get caught the only thing they can really do is pull, and if theyíre caught up good they could pull claws off that way as well.
