Getting ready for our new beardie!

Postby beckys19 » Fri Jan 03, 2020 10:13 am

Got it's new home almost ready- escape-proof bug bowl should arrive today, still need to pick up a hygrometer and a hammock, and was thinking of a water dish since it was recommended in The Bearded Dragon Manual.

UV Lighting is Sunblaster with t5 10.0 Reptisun, aluminum foil reflector added. Basking temps on the "2nd floor" are from around 92 to 110F, the hottest spot there is 11" away from uv, I am thinking of adding a rock or something to get a little extra height. The driftwood is closer, the flattish area at top gets 110-120, although the temperature gun said up to 150 at the very top of the driftwood! I am guessing the dragon will know enough not to fry itself....temps on cool side are 77F+

Looks great! I'd definitely add a water dish at first and flick at the water to create motion. That may help train them to drink from it when they want to. Not all dragons take to it though. Just worth a try.

That setup looks very fun! Nice work on decking out your dragon’s lair!
