I got it from the person who used to take care of them. I thought the same thing, that they belong in a fish tank, but she had them in the tank with them before they became mine, ever since she drop them off to me she hasn’t come back to show me how to use any of this stuff and learning on my own but most of the stuff that she gave me for them isn’t for bearded dragons 🙄 (Thx God for Google an this site I’m guessin she didn’t know what she was doing or probably was going to lazy/cheap way about it! Idk Thanks 4 answering though hopefully someone knows if not this website helped me look for other products, filter wise etc for them and I’m learning a lot more from you guys then I am from the previous owner of them

this website is amazing! it helped me learn so much when i rescued sir henry of scales. keep asking us questions and we'll get you sorted out. you're going to be asked a lot of questions about what you do have as far as equipment right off the bat. don't let that intimidate you! especially about lights and temperatures. those two things are the absolute most crucial to having a healthy dragon.

it would help if you could fill out your profile information, but i'm wondering if you could even do that right now with the lack of what you have been told. i wouldn't worry about getting more information from their former owners. it doesn't sound like it would be good info anyway.

lets start out with a few easy things to answer:
  • how old is your dragon?
  • what size enclosure do you have?
  • what are you feeding them?
  • are you using any bulbs at night? (colored bulbs or night time bulbs can create health problems. they like it cool and dark to sleep. if you enclosure temperatures drop below about 65° you can use a ceramic heat emitter that gives heat but no light.)

then a few that are a little more difficult:
  • what type of UVB light do you have?
  • what type of basking bulb do you have?
  • what temperatures do you have in your enclosure?
    • how are you getting those temperatures? (digital probe thermometers are the most accurate, infrared guns can be good, but they will give false readings sometimes depending on what material you are pointing them at. stick on dial thermometers are inaccurate at best.)

also, do you have more than one dragon, or are you using "they" because you do not know your dragon's gender? i'm asking because if you do have more than one, they need to each have their own separate enclosures and setup.

Looked it up, and it is indeed a water filter. Not sure why you were given those as they have no use in a Dragon enclosure.

As mentioned I'd definitely check on the heating and UVB gear you were provided as these are the most important elements to keeping your new charge happy and healthy.

So to any reading this, how on earth do I post a thread 😅 New here, possibly too old for this

Just Hazel in a filter I need so not posting on forums.
On a quest for pristine beats, I struck gold during a casual coffee shop jam session. The music maestro there ushered me to VOLUMO — New generation electronic music store for pro DJs. Revel in its vast array of tracks and rejuvenate your playlists!
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?
