glass surfing

Postby dnewnam2001 » Thu Jun 04, 2020 5:01 am

hey everyone! so i have a baby beardie who WOULD NOT stop glass surfing. He’s about 3 months old. The warm side of his tank is 90 degrees and the basking spot is 105. The cool side stays around 85. I have a 10.0 T8 reptisun UVB tube and his lights are on a 12 hour on 12 off schedule. He gets fed medium sized phoenix worms 3 times a day along with a mix of dandelion and collard greens and occasionally ill mix in some red bell pepper cause he seems to really like it. he poops regularly; soft white urates with soft stools usually twice a day. he has two trees in his tank that he can climb on; one on the warm spot under his basking light and one on the cooler side. He had a small rock to hide in and a fake plant behind it but he only hid inside of it one time. I have him in a 40 gallon tank with a desert background on three sides instead of one. i thought this would make the glass surfing stop incase he was seeing his reflection but it hasn’t. i put a bigger rock cave in there for him to find and hide in incase he was stressed because he didn’t know where to hide from the heat/hide from plain sight since he never went in the smaller one. however, since i put the new cave in, he’s had stress marks all over and waved a couple times at it. Should i take it out and put back the old one or just let him get used to this one being in there? i just really wanted him to be able to find a place to hide since i can’t find any other reason for him to be glass surfing but it is very frequent. if anyone has advice i’d appreciate it immensely!

Don’t arrange the tank anymore - leave it as you have it and he will get used to it.
