Hi everyone this is my first time here and I am really concerned about my boy he’s just a little over a year he weighs about 13oz and he use to be a really love feeding time he would run around and chase the Dubia roaches and would drink his natural spring water on his own and now for about 2 months or so he has not been eating what so ever and he still drinks his water but won’t eat and he still digs in his cage and still runs around in his tank but just now as much as normal I thought it was just him becoming an adult but I don’t think that anymore. Today 11/29/21 i saw he pooped and everything looked good but it was a little runny so I clean it up come back about 20 min later and he just peed but there was a little bit of red in it and now I’m freaking out. And my Conclusion is that he has an upper respiratory infection or a parasite.

Please go over the basking temps and how your taking them NO stick ons please also the UVB are you using a coil or a tube fixture - this is extremely important it controls the digestion and absorption of the calcium hes ingesting -- -- what are you feeding for supplements? And what is the diet besides the insects any salads? Please post a pic of the dragon

TBH I would get rid of the Solar Glo and if you want to stay w/ a MVB go w/ a PowerSun or Mega Ray please --- you are also going to want to get a long tube fixture to accompany the MVB most do not emit the amount of the UVB rays you need --- I would back it up w/ a Zoo Med 24" fixture w/ a Reptisun 10.0 T 5 or a Arcadia Pro T 5 12% bulb or a Sunblaster Nano Tech comes w/ a bulb -- please NO more lettuce it has no nutritional value-
here is a website for nutrition Nutrition Content ignore the kale thing its a good staple feeder
your UVB and basking temps are extremely important for the over all health of the dragon -- please tell me what the temps are and how your taking them---- the eating and the pooping are controlled by that

Hello,

The Solar Glo is a great MVB light which is nice & bright & provides adequate heating. The UVB strength is a bit low for a MVB light, but
it is quite safe. You could keep that one in place as a basking with low UVB output, combined with one of the T5 tube bulbs that Karrie has
mentioned. Together, it would be a great UVB+heat combination for him.
How is he doing today?
Keep us posted on him.
