One of my dragons Tigger lives in an Exo-Terra® Natural Terrarium Reptile Habitat 36x18x18 for the time being while I wait for replacement parts on his 4x2x2.. I hated the cross t lid so I got a screen cover from Thrive where it’s just screen no cross t. Is there any better fitting lids? I feel like it kinda throws the temps off a bit because my other dragon Mando’s enclosure has higher temps with no issue but he lives in an enclosure with no front opening doors. They both have the same lighting set up and everything.

I’m not sure about better fitting lids I remember when I had a similar enclosure I bought a better quality screen lid it was a little sturdier and had a bigger hole pattern to let more uvb through may look on lllreptile, Pangea, or reptilebasics? When I had a screen top my temps were really hard to maintain and I had to use a extra light for heat on the cool side. Eventually I had my buddy make me a custom lid that had a circular cut out for the basking light and a long rectangular opening for the t5 fixture and they sat on top of the enclosure and it kept the heat inside the viv much better.

i feel so sad reading your about me 😢
Clapton is acclimating okay I think. He's quick as lightning so I'm not sure how much I should bring him out of his house yet. He's not at all interested in his salad though. I wonder if I should change what I'm giving him. Least he's eating his crickets.

Things to do:
Buy calcium powder
Material to raise surface for basking spot
Scenery decals for back of tank

Hi everyone, I have a question please. I have a thick branch I got from outside. It has been in freezing temperatures so I know that it is insect free. I took it off the ground and sat it up during a night we got down to 15 so the entire thing would freeze. Well tonight I put white vinegar all over it too cleanse it since it won't fit in my oven. Do I need to rinse with water tomorrow or is it fine left alone dried?
