Bearded dragons are never to be housed together ---- even females----- not happy w/ that breeder!! Everyone on this board will tell you the same -- they are very territorial---- please only get one female or build another tank ---

Good idea ---- what ever you decide to do but please do not put two of them together- one will become dominant over the other and will suffer-

Awesome looking dragons but I agree they should never be housed together. The cool side is also a bit warm.

So if they eat twice a day one feeding per day should be dusted for 5 days and 2 x a week multivitamin ok that's good to know cause I read some where else the recommended once a week multivitamin

Depending on how many times the dragons will eat --- if they eat 2 times per day dust them both times-- Hiccup would never eat twice / day- only once - I offered him greens daily as well so do the same for yours - mustard collard turnip greens - they probably wont eat it beings their main diet at this time is bugs--- approx around a year that will flip and they will start eating more greens - you can offer them fruit like apples grapes strawberries blueberries mango NO Citrus--- I hope you are planning to start a colony of roaches unless you have already---- they are going to eat you out of house and home w/ the roach thing-----------
