I would get some BSFL ordered or try and find them in your pet shops they are also known as nutri grubs phoenix worms or calci worms -- get large and add them to the top of the salads first thing when feeding -- add them in front of her so it gets them to the salad bowl you will need a glass or ceramic bowl - you can order them from here
http://www.symptonbsf.com do not dust them they are calcium enriched
I can post more websites for worms/ insects here later today

Ok for a fine screen like a screen door you will need to place the T 5 inside the tank approx 12-15 inches directly above the basking decor -- if its a wide hole screen like a dime it can sit on top of the tank approx 8-10 inches directly above -- who did you get the lights from Pangeareptiles? How is the dragon doing?

yes i got the lights from the kink you sent me. The other dragon still isn’t doing well i’m worried. I started giving him baby food and pedialyte and water baths and he seems to be a little more active but he’s still not where he needs to be and it’s worrying. i just wanna get this UV set up asap so i can see if that was the problem. I got their digital thermometer and it’s been at 90, which i know is too cool for baby beardies. Should i switch to a 150w or will that be too much of a drastic change?

What wattage are you using now? Basking temps need to be 105-110- change it out and get a temp - take the probe place it where he basks let it sit for 10 minutes and get a temp --- are they separated?
Please post pics of the tank and dragons?
