Nothing new in his diet. The diarrhea is from laxatives. The uvb is up to date: temps might have been a little warmer for this past week. I thing l he was glass surfing from an upset stomach. That’s what he seems to be doing.
Oh did you mention that before about the laxatives ? Was he seen by a vet and given Lactulose or Enulose ? Why was the laxative given ? That's probably the reason he's sluggish.

He was given a laxative awhile ago. It was ennema and two others. The ennema made him feel bad for two days. He was doing much better. All of a sudden he is not good.

I think my tank is too hot for my 5 month old because he is always under his basking rock and is gaping for 2-3 seconds 3 times that I've recorded
What are your temperatures and how are you taking them — gaping is a bearded dragon’s way of thermoregulating which doesn’t generally mean they are too hot, but if your temperatures exceed 110 degrees Fahrenheit he is definitely going to be too hot.

Don’t use stick-on thermometers or temp guns, they are wildly inaccurate (stick-ons don’t measure surface temps or ambient temps adequately and temp guns are meant for cooking). The best your going to get is a digital probe thermometer on each side.

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!
is tape safe for fixing something in my leopard geckos hide?
Day 3 of brumation. It's a struggle. I really miss my little guy. 😔
Mirage entered brumation yesterday, I'm gonna miss hanging out with my little guy.
