Yes too much of that will cause impaction you dont want that---- please use paper towels for now then you can get some textured NON adhesive shelf liner from Walmart or your local home improvement store - insects cannot get underneath cut it to the size of your tank clean w/ vinegar/water 50/50 then wipe down w/ a clean wet towel / dish rag -- please go over your UVB your using and your basking bulb --- details please --- where in the tank is the UVB

75W CHE, 39w 34" Zoo Med Reptisun 5.0 T5 HO UVB Fluorescent, 150W Fluker basking bulb.

The bulbs and CHE are setup according to this guide: Bearded Dragon Lighting: The Complete How-To Guide - Reptile Advisor

The UVB is inside the tank.
Please change the 5.0 out for a 10.0 bulb -- the 5.0 is more for aquariums and the 10.0 is for reptiles - I am guessing shes eating the substrate for calcium D3 --- you dont want her eating that -- your UVB is going to help her absorb / synthesize the calcium shes eating -- please make sure the 10.0 bulb is directly above the basking decor piece 12-15 inches -- 5.0 bulbs should be 6-8 directly above the basking decor --

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!
