I cant help you until I either see what is going on or you tell me the husbandry in the tank -- there is a reason hes hiding and not basking-- he cloud be just sick I wont know till we rule out husbandry
basking temps? what are they--- how are you taking them ?
UVB ? brand and bulb please? coil or tube? where is it in the tank on top of screen or inside tank?

Ok so here is my suggestion ------ solor glo's are for more experienced beardie owners ---- I dont mess w/ them cuz they are too hard to control----- I would suggest that moving that tank it upset the apple cart so to speak and now something is off --- basking temps should be 105-110 for a baby---- and thats an accurate temp you didnt tell me how your getting that 100 degree temp----- next I would ditch the solar glo and get a Reptisun 10.0 T 8 or T 5 ----- they are spendy - I was just at pet smart this morning and the fixture for a T 8 20" was $60 -- the bulb around $20 I believe--- the T 8's are not as strong as the T 5 --- what size is your tank ????? It would be fine for a 40 gallon -- if your going to up grade to a larger tank I would recommend getting a longer fixture -- a T 5 --- they are stronger bulb and for bigger tanks -- if your using the solar glo for the other tank do you have it mounted above the tank ? like hanging ? the reason hes not basking is something is off w/ that solar glo ----- so only more experienced people w/ that type of lighting is going to haft to help you -- all I know is my lighting is all separate and its easier to control than the all in one ----------------

ok well I still cant help you but I would get that basking temp up to 105-110- I cant help you other than I think its the solar glo doing it- if hes hiding and not basking something is not right- Brandon or Cooper Dragon on here can help you -- see what they think is going on

If everything is the same except the room, it could be the change of scenery or just a coincidence. They don't need/want to bask all the time. If he is eating and alert and otherwise seems OK it's probably not a big issue as long as he is able to easily get to different areas of temp and light intensity.

It's a different house so it's a little different out here
House is detached from regular house
temps are the same and everything
Maybe he feels a draft in here?
I dunno.

He should not quit eating completely-- it will slow down but not all together-- has he not eaten anything today?
