okay now this is a this might be a little tough question please unless it's my imagination, sorry!

Would JIMMIA slowly start to show some colouring besides grey?
please because physically all I see is grey and white and few dark spots but the other day I took a few photos, I know for sure that she did not climb into or over anything to do it BUT in the photo not even a minute apart a different capture and a different position - I can see in the photo a little colouring on the side (its not naked it to the eye I can't see it in real, I don't know when why how it appears) BUT my question is -----> is it normal for them to have the slightest littlest colour change ??? it was like a yellowish, pink colour, it wasn't all her body but it was near the ribs and beard :)

She probably has several more growth spurts coming. She looks nice and healthy though and you're doing a great job with her. It's OK if she isn't growing a lot early on. They grow at different rates so it's better to look at how she looks overall (full fat pads, developed muscles, weight stable or increasing, alert and active, etc) rather than worrying about the measurements themselves.

Could you post some pics of the lights you are looking at? Jimmia would need a Reptisun T5HO (High output) 10.0 Tube bulb. For best health results and a healthier dragon.

Also get a normal White basking light (like a normal halogen bulb) that doesn't have color added to it and throw out the red one.

You don't want the 5.0 version. 10.0 is more appropriate for a dragon. At those wattages I believe they are T8 tubes so I would look for a T5. The wattage difference usually comes down to a different in bulb length. I agree that if you can post photos or links to what you're seeing, we can help you find a good match.

Also, they are much harder to find (and generally more expensive) at pet stores so you would probably find the best deal on Amazon.com.

Yep, I used to visit my local PetBarn ( a big box style self serve pet shop chain here ) when I was buying mealworms and superworms and crickets in BioSUPPLIES or PISCUS tubs. I had an arrangement with the girls - they'd call me when they received their WEEKLY bulk order of crickets and set 8 - 10 tubs of medium crickets aside for me from the NEW batch each week.
We used to stock up on crickets on the way to do our weekly grocery shop.

The chain is focused on dogs, cats, birds, fish , guinea pigs, rabbits and horses. Usually takes girls as sales assistants either p/t while still in high school or as casuals as adults.

One of the girls at the local Pet Barn ( Warners Bay) took one Mildred's babies off my hands , we had visiting rights for a few years until she married and left the area .

Amazon doesn't do international sales to Australia, they have been blacklisted by the ATD because they refused to collect the GST from sales to Australians.

The local "branch" of Amazon is not cheap to buy from. Better of buying via Ebay or from AMAZINGAMAZON based in Melboune https://www.amazingamazon.com.au/catalo ... cat=0&q=t5

If you are only interested in going to Pet Barn, the DON"T buy any REPTILE ONE globes or UV tubes.

Jimma's about 6 months old ?? I'd suggest crickets no bigger than 1/3 size at time of order .

My advise is order your crickets in bulk a week or two before the Xmas shutdown , maybe 800 or 1000 crickets in the bulk order from either Frog Arcade , Livefoods Unlimited or BioSupplies
Crickets :
http://www.biosupplies.net.au/medium-1-25cm-crickets/
http://www.livefoods.com.au/live-insect ... qty-of-250
https://frogs.org.au/live-foods/product ... -crickets/

I suggest saving at least 12 empty cricket tubs (give them a clean) and reuse the egg holders that came in them and the felt as your future cricket keepers.
