    Beardie swollen leg

    Okay I can get that bulb no problem, no it hasn’t got a reflector on it I’m already guessing that would be a good investment as I imagine a lot of the uvb is wasted without one I’m guessing ? Thankyou again for all this info

    Sorry I don’t understand what you’re saying Karrie my tank measures 16inch height x 44inch wide x 19 inch depth I have x2 tube/strip uvb bulbs and one basking/heat screw bulb. Are you saying I would only need x1 tube bulb and the x1 basking bulb?

    Beardie swollen leg

    Thankyou for this Karrie, so you think it’s not something I should be more worried about, as in it’s not early signs of MBD or something along those lines? Could be possible he could have hurt it in some way should I just be monitoring for the time being then you think ? Thankyou for the...
