Need help with lightning and proper sleep schedule

Postby anyalyssa » Tue Aug 14, 2018 5:40 am

I have active house, and there's always some kind of activities going on in every room all day and night. We keep our rats in the den, the cat comes and goes from one bedroom where her food and box are setup, and with me being awake a night, the kitchen and bathroom are also in constant use.

My room is the only room that is kept completely dark or quiet for any length of time, and I need total darkness to sleep, so I couldn't give them light while I'm sleeping during the day. My room also stays too cold for dragons.

What should I do? How can I cover them without restricting air flow?

We have been keeping them on a reversed light schedule, 6pm to 6am is when their lights are on, but I was told by a breeder that I'll need to correct that if I want to breed mine later.

I think that as long as they have a consistent day/night schedule they can adjust to when in the day that is. They do pretty well in active areas though and if you can provide hides for them to sleep in or maybe some fleece blankets they can burrow under, the lights and activity around them shouldn't be a big bother.
