help with my new beardie

Postby honkboy » Mon May 17, 2021 12:53 pm

i got honk a little over a week ago, and i was wondering if he looks as if he’s doing alright and what i can do to make him feel more at home? he seems like he’s gotten bigger even since just being here instead of at Petsmart, but he did bite me this morning. I feed him three times a day and he has all the right set up aside from the tube uvb which i’m getting very soon. does he just not like me?[Click image to enlarge]

Hes going thru relocation stress and hes in a big world and scrared --- it will take time for him to adjust - acclimate to the tank and surroundings but for now he MUST HAVE the proper lighting --- NO coils for UVB NO colored bulbs NO heat mats or rocks and temps are 105-110 taken w/ a digital probe thermometer --- NO stick ons --- what did you order for a UVB brand and bulb please ---

I am about to order the Arcadia T5 bulb with the hood included. I have the Reptisun 10.0 right now, but unfortunately I can’t find a fixture for it so I think I’ll have to buy the Arcadia with the fixture included and set it up as soon as I can. He has no heat mats or rocks, and I believe his temps are about right! I still need to get a probe thermometer, I have a stick-on right now unfortunately.
