    Any recommendations for the setup? Ideas for more enrichment?

    I haven’t been able to get Oslo out as much recently- I’ve been very busy and away from home. I feel bad about it, and would love ideas on what I could do to keep him mentally stimulated while I’m gone. Also, disregard the dehumidifiers. We have like 90% humidity here, and his favorite thing...

    Lighting Questions

    Hi everyone I just finished installing my new zen habitat 4x2x2 enclosure. I have some questions about the lighting. 1. My heat lamp is on top of the screen (24 inches) far away from my bearded dragon. Is this too far? Due to it having a long wire the only other place for it would be about 10...

    Outdoor natural sunlight time

    Hi everyone. I figured I’d make a post here about my DIY Outdoor setup I’ve made for my dragons so they can get time in the natural sunlight and stay safe at the same time. The setup is pretty simple so you don’t need to be extremely skilled. What you’ll need: stiff wire mesh panels A roll of...

    NEW Beardie - A Few Questions

    Hi! I just got a Beardie. He's about 5 years old. I got his enclosure, too, but I had to clean out the sand and put tile down, which I did as soon as I got him. He's been hiding under his stone cave for about 3 days (eats only when put in front of him), so I took the cave out today. He is...

    Why are Zilla or Thrive bad?

    Hi! Just wondering if anyone can provide concrete research or personal experiences to explain why Zilla and Thrive are not recommended brands…? I was recently told not to use Zilla and based on some posts, both of those brands are frowned upon. Thanks in advice for any insight!

    Thoughts on my UVB Setup

    Hello! I was wondering if my UVB setup is appropriate for my tank. The tank is a 4x2x2 Zen Habitat and the Bulb is a HO T5 10.0 Reptisun in a 36" fixture. When we upgraded his tank I was told that the UVB should cover 2/3 of the tank, so I purchased this fixture. However, after doing more...

    New tank temps running a little cold

    I just upgraded my juvenile dragon from a 20 gallon that was far too small for her to a 40 gallon. So far she’s taking to the new tank well, however I’m really struggling with the tank temps. She’s about six months old, so her basking spot needs to be between 100-110, but right now it’s hovering...
