For UVB, heater, and thermostat.. I would suggest changing to Arcadia 12% desert T5, for heater an Arcadia Deep Heat Projector, and for thermostat a Habistat Dimming Stat. You at least have guarantee that Stat and DHP will last years with UV lasting you up to a year. I use all three, and I highly recommend these. I use a 7% T5 from Arcadia, and same heater and stat for my leopard gecko. I may have had my beardie since Wednesday, but I can tell you, both beardies are in brumation, if not a partial one. This thread also made me sure that my leopard is in partial brumation as well. At least he's got a fat reserve!
They are all the bulbs am using as well have used them since we got him over a year ago. Ragnar is doing great thought this brumation his eyes have been open alot the past few days but he still looks very sleeping and hasn't come out since last Sunday so he isn't done yet. Ragnar hasn't eating alot since just that's when I know he was going into brumation. He has never been one for eating lots. He was 495g before he went into brumation and the last time I checked he was sitting at 465g so he hasn't lost that much as they can lose up to 50g. Am hoping when he comes out of it he is going to eat loads to get that weight back on. Just want him awake fully now as I miss him so much lol
Ragnar has been awake and out his hide for 2 hours now I think he might be done but not too sure so just leaving him to do his own thing just now. If he is awake for the rest of the day I will put his lighting and heating back to normal and offer him food in a little bit he is looking great 5 hours later he is away back to sleep lol
That’s awesome that Ragnar is back awake.
Scales is still worrying me, we’ve left him be and offered him water every other day, and he been staying under log.
Just gone home from work and he’s in corner like this
Ragnar went back to sleep after that. He was awake for a couple of hours yesterday after his water then went back to sleep again. I will attach a picture of him awake yesterday. That's all you can do is just keep offering him. It deffo sounds like he is in semi brumation. He looks great so try and not worrie I was the same when ragnar went into it was stressing me out. They are a worrie eh
He’s actually sleeping now in the same position.
Yes we have a few things that he uses as a hide.
I have been dropping water on his nose, he usually kicks his nose about 4 or 5 times, and that’s it. I add a few more drops but he isn’t bother to lick them
I have questions about bubbles on our bearded dragons eye.
So he’s gotten bubbles on his eye. We wiped them off and it’s only been twice in the last few weeks. Should we be concerned? No coughing or congestion. He’s very hungry and sleeps well. He’s 8-9 month range. His humidity is 30-40 day time and as high as 50-55 at night to early morning.
Should we be concerned?
Currently trying not to stress over my anemic dragon....she is being treated, but I don't agree with her treatment plan and have been seeking out a second opinion from another vet. If anyone else has dealt with anemia, please let me know how it was resolved. I am losing sleep over this
Another post lol. My beardie does not like enclosures. Her tank is the kids room and she has created a nesting/bed spot in the corner. She will cuddle with my son but she know when the lights are out and the kids go to sleep, she literally goes to her bed like she is our 3rd baby. I love her. And to think, I never wanted a beardie lol
