Total newbie here but we had been researching for a couple of years before we finally jumped in! We spent a couple of months building his 120 gal terrarium and he has now been with us for 3 days! He is not eating as well as I would like yet but I suspect he is still adjusting and will devolope his big appetite soon! His name isn't the most creative but my kids picked!

We have a t5 10.0 in a sunblaster fixture. Temps are 105-110 under basking spot and 80-85 on cool side. 2 digital thermometers and all lights are mounted inside.[Click image to enlarge]

Sounds good make sure your T 5 is approx 12-15 inches from basking decor--- his eating may slow as you mentioned but it will pick up once he goes thru that relocation stress --- but it looks nice -- your tile looks like what I have in my two tanks -- did you get it at Home Depot?

The tile actually came from Menards. I hoped it had enough texture to keep from being too slippery but I think I may still need to add some slate tiles as well for him. I feel a little concerned about sticking the little guy in such a big enclosure right away...will he feel less safe or anything odd right now having so much space after coming from a crowded, tiny pet store tank?

He will be fine :) Nothing bigger than the big outside world he would have naturally been born into :)

I like to start my young dragons in large tanks too. Especially if it's going to be their forever home.
