Hello,

It looks like she is getting better now, bless her!
The Zilla slimline is an "ok" bulb but will work for a short bit. The Reptisun 10 tube or the
Arcadia D3 12% or 14% tubes are much better for UVB output.
We recommend using the D3 only 1-2 times per week but calcium at least 4-5 times weekly.
The herptivite can be used 1-2 times weekly. When you use the calcium, only dust once a day
on one meal so you don't overuse the calcium.
Since she is tiny, she wont need a lot of baby food, maybe 1-2mls daily. Is she still going to the
bathroom?
Let us know how she is doing.

Thank you! She is going to the bathroom so that must be a good sign. She’s eating well also. I am returning the Zilla unit today and I’m ordering the Arcadia tubes and reflector hood. I’ll order the calcium only ( the one I have now has the d3 in the calcium.) I’m also going to mount the uvb light on the inside of the cover when I get the new one.
Thanks again!!!

Please let us know what bulb you get when it comes - the bulbs have certain distances when installed in the tank -- we can help w/ that

Hello,

How is your dragon doing this evening?
I hope you get the Arcadia light soon, it should help out tremendously. Keep us posted
on things.

He’s doing great! Back to normal. The light won’t be here until Tuesday. I am going to mount it inside the tank and I’ll post pics when I have it all done so I’m sure I did it correctly.
Thanks so much!
