I got my shipment in early and some of the dubias roaches are huge I just wanna double check that they are ok to feed adult beardies

I have some small/medium and some huge ones I chose 3/4" to 1" in size

If your beardies will actually chew them up, your probably ok. My boy Zen is good about it, but Snickers isn't so i don't give her the big ones. (my other dragons are quite a bit smaller in stature so i never give the big ones to them)

No need to. Full size dragons can eat adult dubias.

If your dragon isn't full grown, or a smaller adult, adjust accordingly.

Both beardies. My Chubbs (right pic) handled the dubias fairly well with a ton of chewing

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 :cry:
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
