    Calcium

    Thanks for your help! So would you recommend dusting during every cricket feeding? Or should I limit it? Right now, he is young so I give him crickets twice a day (usually he will eat around 15-30. sometimes even more… i’ve started to limit it to however many he can eat in 10 minutes.) & collard...

    Calcium

    I ended up buying the supplement you recommended off amazon but have not yet had the chance to use it. So does this also contain the D3 they need? Or do I need to buy that separate? Is it safe for me to dust all the crickets I feed him with this powder or do I need to limit the amount? and...

    Inside of throat

    Okay so this may be a really stupid question, but every little thing worries me so I wanna make sure this isn’t a cause for concern. My beardie was on his basking rock, gaping after eating. I noticed inside his throat there is black lines. They’re small, thin black lines and what isn’t black...

    Calcium

    Hello! I have not yet bought any calcium to dust my crickets with. I feed the crickets flukers orange cubes but i’m not sure that this product has enough (or any at all) calcium. What calcium do you recommend I buy? Also, should I switch my cricket food? I’ve read some reviews saying it’s not...

    Feeding advice

    I feed my juvenile bearded dragon live crickets 2x daily, he usually eats about 10-15 both times. I also give him some lettuce in a bowl and sometimes a few pieces out of my hands. Today I gave him cut up pieces of a grape but i've also read fruits shouldn’t be fed daily. I’ve now been reading...

    Too hot?

    I decided to get a 100 watt basking bulb for my 20 gallon tank because the 75 watt was only getting up to about 90 degrees. My beardie is a juvenile so i’ve read the recommended is between 105-110. I placed my thermometer probe directly on the middle of the basking spot & it’s reading 118 so i’m...

    Enclosure help and advice

    Yes he’s pretty small right now, i’d say only 1-2 months based on how long he is & what i’ve read. I’m definitely going to upgrade his tank as needed, and if not needed sooner it’ll be done by New years:). And yes you’re correct, I was thinking of a dehumidifier rather than the fogger. I found...

    Possible tail rot?

    Here’s an update. I came home from work today & realized the tip of his tail looked bigger, almost like the actual tip had fallen off. Not even 5 minutes later, I found the tip in the tank, sure enough it had. Can this be just because his tail got nipped, or should this cause more concern? I...

    Is My Beardie okay?

    I see that you have the stick on thermometers in the back. Do you have any other thermometers to measure both the temp and humidity? If not, I’d recommend getting one that is not a stick on and rather a probe. I’m a first time beardie owner too, but from what i’ve read, the stick on ones are not...
