Where is she laying in the tank? Is the T 8 inside the tank or on top of screen? I would try and boost your basking temps up higher to like 100-110- she is probably going thru some relocation stress but I would think she wouldnt quit eating completely -- can you take a picture of her tank a lighting so we can see what else could possibly going on? https://www.beardeddragon.org/useruploads/ click on XIMG to post pics

It’s on top of the screen ... should it be inside?

Yes it should be approx 6-8 inches from his basking spot- the screen filters the UVB rays -- I would get it mounted inside and see if his behavior doesnt change-- here are some things you can hang it w/
command Velcro fasteners- picture hanging wire – plastic zip ties

In addition, what are you measuring your temps with?

Relocation stress can trigger when moving to a new enclosure, so it's a possibility it's just that too.

But it never hurts to try to get things as optimal as possible :)

Hello,

Definitely post some pictures of your dragon if you can, that would be helpful.
We just need to see light placement of your UVB, etc.
As already mentioned, sometimes even moving them to a different tank, can really
affect their appetites.
Let us know how she is doing.
