2 female juvenile bearded dragons in one 40 gallon tank.

Postby BaconSlayed2630 » Thu Jun 18, 2020 3:45 pm

Hello, my name is Kimberly and my wife and I just bought two juvenile/baby female bearded dragons at the same time from the same tank. I was just curious, is it safe to have them in one 40 gallon tank together because they grew up together. We were planning on getting another 40 gallon tank because we are afraid and cautious that they would start fighting, or try killing each other, and we just cant live with that.
So I am hoping that it is okay to house them in the same 40 gallon tank for a few days, but possibly give them 2 separate food bowls so they dont fight over their food? Will this work? I just want to be safe, we will be buying another tank on tuesday when we get paid. Any answers will be great, please and thank you!

Please separate them as soon as you can --- it is not advisable to keep dragons together --- you will need to buy another set up of course so we can go over that now --- first you need a 24" fixture w/reflector and a Reptisun 10.0 T 5 bulb - this is at this time the best on the market besides the Arcadia 12% bulbs - you need a bright white basking bulb that keeps temps for babies 105-110 and taken w/ a digital probe thermometer NO stick ons they give ambient temp only! No colored bulbs! And no loose substrate - it causes impaction especially in babies --- paper towels can be used for now or some textured NON adhesive shelf liner from Home Depot cut to the size of the tank - its easy to keep clean and insects cannot get underneath- please do not leave crickets in the tank if your feeding them -- they bite and can cause infection - we can go over diet and food I can help you w/ that --

Thank you for response. We have 4 other bearded dragons all in separate tanks. We have to get a new tank on tuesday when we get paid so we know the basics. We are watching them very carefully, so nothing bad happens. But thank you again for your great response.

Hello,

Are you planning on keeping them together permanently or for just a few days?
Each case is uniquely different.
Most of us here, recommend keeping them in their own tanks, but, there are some who
have successfully kept two females in a tank with no issues. It is up to you since you do
know them better than we do.
They can be unpredictable so it's hard to give a yes or a no. They can be fine one minute
& years later for some unknown reason, become territorial. You could also get a large tank,
& divide it so they could still see each other, if that is an option too.
Our primary goal here is to try to keep our information current & correct but most of all to promote
good health & longevity as well.
Be sure to post pictures also, if you would like!
