Hello everyone,
I give my beardie a mix of dubias and BSFL occasionally crickets. Wanted to know if butterworms is good to feed him? If so, where do you buy your butterworms? Trying to offer a variety for him.

Thanks :D

Butterworms arekind of a 'healthierish' waxie. You can buy them online at rainbowmealworms.com or dubiaroaches.com (I think).

Ok so its better to get them smaller quantities and use as treats basically? Also, hornworms are okay to feed to 4/5 month beardie?

Yes, I would start with the smallest size. They grow extremely fast. You can let them grow for a day or two if they are too small, plus you get more count with smaller sizes for the price. If you want to slow down their growth you can put them in a cooler place like a wine cooler, not the fridge though it can kill them. You can keep butterworms in the warmest spot of the fridge though.

If you want the hornworms to grow fast you can keep them in a warm place, like the cool end of your enclosure (80s degrees)

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
Taking my beardie for a walk
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?
