    Distance from UVB?

    From my UVB light to the bottom of the enclosure is 15" but when you add a half hide and decor to sit on it's 10"- 12" from the UVB. Just wanted to make sure 10"-15" is safe for them it was originally 15"-20" from bottom to the light which is why I dropped it It is a Arcadia T5 13% dessert tube...

    Brumation eating and drinking?

    Hey guys I have been waking my beardies up every 2 weeks to see if they want water or food. Should I be concerned if they don't want to eat or drink or if they eat but won't bask or poop? They have pretty much hunkered down and are not active at all day or night only active when I wake them

    Rocks and decor???

    I am disappointed I ordered some slate rocks and they are not what I was expecting at all. So I went to home depot and many rocks (no slate) where huge and some EXTREMELY sharp.
