Beardie not Eating

Postby arrogantoreo » Fri Oct 18, 2019 10:26 am

Have had the beardie for about 3 weeks now and have not seen it eat more than a cricket since we have had it. Tried Dubia roaches mealworms and phoenix worms. For the light I have an Exo terra Solar Glo and also has an extra basking lamp because it wasn't getting hot enough. enclosure stays at about 90 degrees and Basking area at 110. Not sure if I should take her to the vet? Have tried giving her the appetite booster by Flunkers as well. Ive been leaving squash behind while away but it doesn't look like it gets touched.

How old is the beardie? You need a cool side of tank around 80's during the day -- how are you taking the basking temps? The most accurate is w/ a digital probe or a infrared heat gun-- he / she needs to be offered vegies every day a variety of salad here is website for nutrition
Also a variety of insects here is some website for that as well -- they are small and do not need to be dusted w/ calcium
You should only need one basking light -- what wattage is the Solar Glo? My guess is the distance is off - since it is a all in one---- that I cannot help you w/ -- some one else on the forum will haft to help w/that since I have no experience w/ them --- my UVB and basking lights are separate --- easier to control ---
