Hi, I know the subject sounds stupid but i was just wondering. Ive read on websites that vegetables such as mustard greens, collard greens, escaroles and endives are great staple :study: but i just dont see them in any market Ive been to.(Im from South East Asia btw) We have a lotta varieties of vegetables here but i just cant seem to find those listed :? The closest thing i could find was chinese mustard greens, which goes by the name gai choy/ kai choi. So are they like the same thing? Some guidance would be greatly appreciated! Thx! :D

Gai Choy is different. It can taste bitter so your dragon may or may not like it. Worth giving it a try though. You may have to vary from the guides a little bit to offer a variety of greens that are available in your area. Stick with dark green leaves and as much variety as you can offer and you should be OK.

For reference, this is the mustard green the charts are speaking about

I don't have any nutrition information about it to make that decision. I would offer it if your dragon likes it. I would also offer as much variety as you can.

I just set Swordtail's timer for his bath and paused it so I could actually fill his soaking bowl up and he crawled over my phone and canceled the timer 🤣
Mirage came out of brumation on April 26. He was doing great. On May 2 he started acting funny. We just redid his tank, and he keeps going into one of his hides. He just lays there. He shows no intrest in food. HELP!
