I have an arcadia d3 all in one bulb, i was told they’re okay. He was eating crickets when i first got him and the he stopped eating them completely. he’s eaten a couple dubia roaches past few days and ate maybe 10/15 calci worms today. He’s also been eating mealworms which i know aren’t the best for them, i’ve read if you have no other options they should be okay. They were all he was willing to eat. i have more locusts on the way to see if he’ll eat them. he had another poop not long before bed which looked much more normal. He’s been very lively and every other bowel movement been normal. Also ignore the weird sleeping position in second pic haha. He’s been basking normally he’s just us the one funny poop all other been normal, he’s drinking and bathing most days. Basking temps roughly 38-41 depending where he is/how high up.

I am not familiar w/ a Arcadia all in one bulb--- what wattage is it? And it probably should be directly above him-- what are the basking temps and how are you getting them?

Hi there, I don't see any blood, he looks plump and healthy. :) If he's had another healthy poo since then he's probably fine. If he has red poo again try to get a pic right away.

He had red pepper in with him but as far as i know he didn’t eat any, only panicking because looked a darker red rather than undigested pepper, that could be it tho

Alright i will do, i think it’s that it was big compared to his usual and the colour just worried me. He’s my first beardie and because he’s a baby i’m terrified of messing it up😂 Thank you!!

Hello,

The stool looks pretty normal to me also. What vitamins are you currently using?
Since you using the Arcadia D3 mercury vapor bulb, it needs to be at a 12 inch distance,
for safety. What is the distance to him?
