 Help I need some information please

Hi I had my horny toad lizard for almost 2 years, he just passed away a couple days ago, he had everything he needed, I had him in a 10 gallon tank with ubv light that was 10.0 that stayed on all day, and his heat lamp that was on at nite(cause my daughters room was cold) 60 watt, and I had a small water dish in there for him to drink from and he used to get into it too, his temp NEVER got below 70 at nite and he got to about 100 degrees during the day, He loved mini mealworms and of course I bought him the harvester ants(I had to order them online) and then just one day he just stopped eating and after NOT eating for 5 days he passed away he never seembed to be in any distress, was just sleeping all the time! Does anyone know what could of happened to put my mind at ease? Thanks all.......

He didn’t have everything he needed. I definitely see A LOT of things wrong here, starting with your terrarium size, and your lighting. A 10 gallon setup is highly objectionable, and mealworms are bad news for impactions in horned lizards if you don’t know exactly what you are doing with them. Most people don’t.
