Ok do get some different decor-- something he can climb on-- go to or visit website PetSmart they have nice decor for dragons-- I would get rid of the solarglo it obviously is not doing what it needs to and get a regular bright white basking bulb--- wattage will be trial and error I would start w/ a 100 watt and get a 150 watt have on hand-- make sure you have a infrared heat gun from Walmart home Depot Lowe's around $10 or so so you can get accurate basking temps -- you don't want to cook him-- once you get all this lighting in place you will see a difference in his behavior--- right away

I have other wood he can climb on. It’ll take a lot of persuading to make my parents get a different basking light. Also his eyelids are like bluish when his eyes are closed. Almost like they are partially transparent. Is that bad?

is there a sticky with the basics/ how to/ when to etc that i could look at?
do you use it where a time out used to apply?
my middle one needs something like this in particular, but im not sure how to do it. so that it doesnt feel like a time out to him or me.

Are you kidding me? This is not a time out corner for if he gets in trouble. This is a possible matter of life or death!

For everyone else he is doing a bit better but still just lays in the corner. I added one of his old wood pieces to the basking spot so he can climb up there easier.

I had to put him on the basking spot and he immediately started to leave it.

Pretty sure that is a spam bot. They have evolved over the years! LOL

Has he at least been acting alert and active?

Something we didn't ask, is there a plastic diffuser covering your uvb bulb at all?
You could turn off the bulb and look at the end, it will usually tell you what brand it is there.

There is no plastic covering the basking bulb if that is the one you meant.

This was a spam bot as mentioned. I've removed the post and banned the account. I apologize for the intrusion.

The UVB bulb doesn’t have a plastic covering either.
