My 1 and a half year old beardie named Newman always has stress marks or is a dark color. i've had him for a year now and he's always been like this. only occasionally i've seen him with a pure white belly and light brown skin which is concerning. is he not happy? am i doing something wrong? he has a beautiful bioactive enclosure with soil and aloe plants for him to eat and dig. there is mercury vapor bulb on one side and standard uvb/uva on the other. he eats repashy beardie buffet as a main food and gets bugs occasionally.

Please post a pic of the tank so some of the other more experienced w/ bioactive tanks can help -- I am no good w/ bioactive -- https://www.beardeddragon.org/useruploads/ click on XIMG at the top of the message box then click on the pic it should post
I can look at your lighting and see if something is off there
