Leaf litter I have is magnolia leaves , maple leaves and also oak leaves . For clean up crew I have isopods a few diffrenet kinds , spring tails, earthworms and dubia roaches .

That's a nice looking set up, your beardie is living the good life ! There aren't very many owners on this site that have bioactive but you'd probably get more responses in the " enclosures " sub. I do have a question, his beard is retaining water, what type + how often do you use supplements ?

I use herbative or whatever it's called and calcium with d3 once maybe twice a week if I remember
Edit I just bought calcium without d3 . could the calcium with d3 cause the storage of fluid in the beard? She has perfect uvb amount and she gets sun periodically maybe once twice a week
