Skipper's Adventures

This forum is specifically for people who want to share day-to-day stories about their beardies... the weird or fun stuff. This is not a forum for seeking help, but more just for sharing the cuteness that is your beardie.

2 for $10 is a good deal for those and they are decent bulbs. They will also have a burn in time so let one run for a few days and then measure the temps from it. If you can raise it up using an adjustable lamp stand you can fine tune the output a bit.

Thanks yet again.

I've been using the 100w version of that bulb, but just recently skipper has decided she likes a cooler basking spot. Not sure why she changed her mind after 8 years :lol:

Duh! She's wanted a cooler spot ever since I put the tile in. Makes perfect sense. I'll get a weaker basking bulb in tomorrow and post an update.

Does the tile make the tank warmer overall?

I believe so. I can only measure ambient temps with the cheap stick on thermometer, but it is reading higher than before the tile. (I figure that the thermometer is at least consistent. it reads correctly for my kitchen temp)

The slate also retains some heat overnight.

I'll keep that in mind also while I'm in the midst of this upgrade ^_^ instead of buying bigger bulbs I'll keep what I have and check it first. I wish Maggie's hammock retained some warmth...

Hello hoomans. I haven't updated in a while. But I have some big news. I'm getting a little brother this weekend. He's gonna be a snake. Some people are afraid, but I think he's really cute.


Ps: hooman has been excited about spring break. But, I don't thinks this is the type he was talking about. I told him that collar bones are supposed to stay attached to shoulders. He refuses to listen.

Thanks to all who helped and advised me along the way. Skippers life was better for it.

Unfortunately, skipper passed away today just a couple months short of 11 years old. She will be missed greatly. I’ll lay her to rest on her beardie bed. Picture spam incoming.

The vet thought her sudden slowing may be do to kidney failure at old age... Skipper passed before the blood tests came back.

Oh, so sorry for your loss! Nearly 11 is pretty good, though, and she was clearly loved. Did you end up getting her the baby brother snake? Do you still have him?
Never knew I could get so happy about poop, or so comfortable with bugs. :-D
