NEW 5 MONTH OLD BEARDIE NEEDING HELP**

Postby SpyroTheDragon15 » Mon Nov 02, 2020 8:35 am

Hello Everyone my name is Spyro and my owners need a helping hand

We are new to owning a Beardie and need some help with the Viv, as you can see what it currently looks like we firstly got told from the shop we bought him from to use Ground Walnut shell but after research this was a bad option, we have since put newspaper in but would like a good replacement which is aesthetically pleasing and clean, does anyone know the best for this and if so could you please attach the link?

Secondly what is the best options for food at this age because he has eaten a few crickets but none of his veg (naughty boy my Mum would tell me off) please let us know

Also if anyone has any more tips or improvements we can make please let us know [Click image to enlarge]

I use tile floor ! Just regular tile flooring from a hardware store cut to fit the viv. Just look for something textured so it’s easy to walk on. Slate is good for their nails. Very easy to clean !

The lighting looks like it could use some adjustment / decor pieces- what are you using for a UVB brand and bulb-- distance and placement play a key role here --- also basking temps what are they and are you taking them w/ a digital probe thermometer? A few crickets is not enough - I would get some BSFL and add them to the salads in front of him --- but the lighting in the tank needs to be correct before he will eat ---
