What’s wrong with her?

Postby Carmen315160 » Mon Jul 06, 2020 8:08 am

Last night I checked on my jeuvenile beardie and she looked dark. I know that’s normal. But I decided to give her a bath this morning and she pooped way more then she usually does. And it was green and you could see unchewed food in it. Now she is acting very lazy and closes her eyes. Is she okay???

Basking temps what are they and how are you taking them? No stick ons they are inaccurate-- UVB? What is the brand and bulb? Coil or tube? Where in the tank is it? Top of screen or inside the tank?

The temperature is 115 on the warm side everyday, and it is 85 degrees on the cold side and her first 150 watt basking bulb wasn’t hot enough so I put another 100 watt bulb in there. The brands I use are Zoo Med and Exo Terra. Her tank is 40 gallons. (She is a small juvenile) The basking bulbs are on the top of the tank on the outside and on the left side is the warm side.

115 is too hot how are you taking that temp? No stick ons!! You need a digital probe thermometer ASAP -- put the probe on the basking decor let it sit for 10 minutes get temp--- ineed UVB brand and bulb

It is a thermometer. It is Velcroed to the inside of the tank. I made sure it was accurate before I put it inside. And lately she refuses to eat her crickets, and only will eat her mealworms.

Her thermometer is not digital. The digital one I had before wasn’t accurate.

The UVB brand is Zoo Med and it is a 13 watt bulb.

Also, when I woke up this morning her arms and legs were a lighter color then her body. She was originally orange and yellow. But now she’s all dark with white legs and arms???

You need a digital probe thermometer to get accurate temps --- your getting ambient temps -- your basking temps should not be above 115 she is too hot --- you want basking temps 95-110 for a juvenile dragon - she needs a decor piece that would offer a gradient heat -- something she can lay sit and stand against w/ different temps --- Petsmart has great decor for dragons--- she needs salads every day along w/ a staple feeder like crickets or dubia roaches or silk worms --- meal worms are not a staple diet -- you want her healthy ---- what are you using for a UVB ? This is crucial to the overall health of your dragon -- if your using a coil I recommend you get rid of it and get a 24" fixture w/ a reflector and a Reptisun 10.0 T bulb --- if your tank is 40+ gallons---- she will not eat if basking temps are not correct and UVB is not proper ---- if you need help finding one let me know I can post websites for insects/ worms etc -- here is a website for nutrition ignore the kale thing its a good staple feeder

[code][/code]She has a log that she likes to bask on sometimes, I’ll try to get her some Dubia roaches and see if she likes them. I’m on my phone so I’m not sure how to post a pic of her. Her bulb is not like a normal lightbulb look it has more of a coil U shape. I give her Kale, Zucchini, and some juvenile beardie food. The brand of that I use is Flukers. Also, the UVB is a 10.0 UVB. And I’ll check out some more stuff at pet smart for her.

You need to change the coil bulb UVB --- this may be or could be part of the issue --- if you go to the menu on the left side of the website scroll down to user image uploader and follow the download etc then when you reply on top of the message box click on XIMG click on the pic and it should post -- post that pic or look on the box if you still have it and tell me what it is -- I am thinking its a Reptisun 10.0 13 watt coil - those are NO good -
