Stress marks

Postby Lizzierenai » Thu Nov 14, 2019 4:03 pm

I’ve had my beardie for a week now he’s about 6-7 wks I think, I havnt really noticed growth he doesn’t really eat all that much he has a whole bunch of stress marks on his underside and they don’t seem to go away. I have proper lighting with proper temp, I have a 20 gal aquarium he’s about 5-7 inches I haven’t been trying to touch or hold him bc I don’t want to stress him out more. I’m very worried about him please help me. He also scratches his head on the branch, all he really does is bask he doesn’t come down for food or water I recently changed him from his small tank to a bigger one 2 days ago and like I said I’ve only had him for exactly a week.

Hi there,

If we've already been over your setup with you I wouldn't worry about that.

Stress marks are common when they are going through relocation stress, it's nothing to worry about. Pair that with him scratching his head, that could mean he's shedding or about to. That stresses them out too and lowers their appetites.
I wouldn't worry, give lebron james some time to settle in :)
