My beardie hasn't pooped in over 3 weeks!

Postby imxaaliyah » Sun Sep 20, 2020 8:29 am

My beardie is about 1 yr and a half, and she hasn't pooped in a little over 3 weeks now, I've tried to give her baby prune food with a little bit of olive oil and I've also tried giving her baths. She's also been eating very small amounts of food :( what should I do

What have you fed her? Any insects bigger than the space between her eyes? Please post a pic of her and the lighting you have in her tank UVB -- what are her basking temps and how are you taking them? NO stick ons they are inaccurate

You need a bright white basking bulb that keeps temps 95-110-- w/out it they will not start the digestion process and temps need to be taken w/ a digital probe thermometer ---CHE's are ONLY good for keeping temps in the tank warm when its winter etc --- they are not to be used for basking lights -- what is the UVB your using ? NO coils they are inadequate -- we need to get this fixed ASAP
