Is it possible or good for the dragon to use a DHP for his basking heat along side my Arcadia t5? Or do I still need light? Just curious.

You need a CLEAR bright white basking bulb - the dragon needs UV and the bright white bulb will provide that- a dhp is good for temps at nite if your tank is falling below 65 not for basking

His T5 has UV... The DHP offers IR/heat as well. Not sure why he would also need a bright white?

T5s are pretty bright on their own, so adding the IR could work. I tend to still keep an incandescent bulb in the mix though. In my free roam setup, I have 3 bulbs side by side - incandescent BR40, Heat Projector, and MVB. I find that over the course of the day, Darwin kind of takes turns using each of them, so I think giving more options is the best route.

is my bearded dragons left side supposed to be hard, it’s right above its left leg in the back, it’s kind of hard? i feed it insects and greens. not sure if it’s normal or not? i can post pictures.
His first vet visit went well! Abelardo Texas looks good physically according to his new Dr.
Unfortunately, on the fecal it showed that he has Coccidia. Not a surprise honestly... he has been having diarrhea since I got him. I got Albon, F10, and a steam cleaner on hand.
I'm kinda freaked out, I heard coccidia is a beast to get rid of. Wish me luck! 😭
Sorry didn’t mean to post the last post was an accident, but I do have a question I have a 7 month old dragon, her name is Smaug and she will not eat her salad I have tried everything that I can, just wondering if anyone can help me because I’m stuck and I know that she should probably be eating them by now! If anyone can give me ideas that would be great!
