Introduced Beardie to new substrate

Postby CookieBeast12 » Wed Apr 07, 2021 11:27 am

Rex turned 6 months March 9th and I've very recently switched him to a loose substrate (A 70% Topsoil and 30% Sand mix) Like I switched it yesterday, and I'm wondering if it would have negative effects on him with introducing new substrate.

He'd been glass surfing and bobbing before I switched it out but it seems it's aggravated him, He's just one of the sassy beardies that bobs after basically everything and anything. but he's glass surfing a ton more. He's got a completely white stomach and beard so he isn't much stressed. But he's been pacing the glass for the entire 1 1/2 days I've had the new substrate. Is this normal? will he eventually calm down? Asking for a friend :)

Not sure about the substrate thing I know they dont like change but I recommend you get the UVB in the tank -- the screen is blocking 30% of the rays and it needs to be 12-15 inches directly above the basking decor
