Hello everyone.!!! I just upgraded my baby beardie Mylo into his Exo Terra 36x18x18. And I am loving this tank. He has a Reptisun 10.0 T5 HO and a 100w Zoomed Basking lamp. I do have a screen on top but my beardie can get up close to the UVB as much as he likes. His basking spot is around 105 and his hot side around 96 and his cool side at 85. Any advice or is my set up good?[Click image to enlarge]

Looks great ! Lots of climbing areas which beardies love and are great for exercise+ muscle strength. Just watch that the hammock doesn't snag Mylo's nails. Other than that, very nice !

I agree, looks great! Are you double checking the surface temps with an IR temp gun or digital thermometers with probes? Those are much more reliable (especially for surface readings) than the dial thermometers on the walls.

Re: Rate my setup or any advice. Help beardie losing weight.

OK good. His weight will fluctuate, that's normal. Keep readings and just track the trend rather than the individual readings.

Thanks.! I just got my dubia roach colony and received 500 small nymphs to feed while I get my colony started. That should help him bulk up since I was only doing crickets and Phoenix worms
