Weird behavior

Postby Hashman » Wed Jul 17, 2019 6:23 am

I moved my little guy that’s about 3 months into a 40gal and ever since he won’t even let my hand near him without him freaking out and or running away from me. He’s never done this before and he also has some stress marks

Hes probably going thru relocation stress again --- approach from the side not over head --- he will think your a predator -- give him time he will adjust -- I noticed that you have a dual dome lighting whats in there? A coil UVB?

It’s a 10.0 reptisun compact fluorescent.. I just moved him from a 10 gallon and he was acting perfect in there. Do you think it is because I don’t have the tube 10.0? And then I have a 75 watt basking light

Yes get rid of the compact -- they are harmful to the dragon -- get the tube either the T 8 or T 5-- depending on screen wide hole or fine mesh the T 5 can go on top if it's fine mesh it will need to go into tank--- that is another reason for the behavior

I have the exo terra 40 gal.. it has pretty fine mesh and a background. I’ve seen the t5 can go on top because it is stronger or do I still need to find a way to put it inside the tank? It’s difficult because the background and no way to hang it

Yeah, it’s a styrofoam background if you look up exo terra medium terrarium that’s what I have

Ok so you may haft to take the background off for a bit to hang the UVB inside the tank -- it does not get hot---- here are some things to hang it w/ command Velcro fasteners- picture hanging wire – plastic zip ties---https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Nylon-Cable-Tie-Ties-Black-2-5-3-5-4-8-7-6-9-X-100-150-200-300-370-530mm-UV-Good/332871964184?hash=item4d80b71618:m:m40KOkegiGiJeePUguhY5cQ&var=541991102297
