Perhaps these is a silly question, but what volume constitutes a dusting?
When I originally picked up our beardie Spyro I was told by the pet shop pinch of Caci dust or Vits into the crickets tub (tub 50 - 100 Crickets) give it a shake and feed. but in that tub is also the bug grub, it does not seem a very efficient way of dusting, would there even be enough on the crickets from just a pinch?!
Iwould love to know how others apply there "dustings"
I know that's a good question. With the calcium there is no real definite answer but just do so lightly and more often as babies [ every bug meal ] than for sub adults + adults. It's a bit of a guesstimate with every dragon, esp. since some dragons eat more insects than others and then there's calcium WITh D3 and without. I alternate those with my babies [ when I had babies ] and as they got near adulthood I only dusted every 3-4 times a week. As adults, 2-3 times a week. This seems to work for me.
It’s the 160 watts. It gets pretty hot in his basking spot, sometimes up to 109. I’m getting a new fixture and my husband is going to have to mount the uvb tube closer. It’s an aquarium tank with glass all around so it’s difficult to put the tube light closer. I currently have it sitting on the rim of the tank.
Can beardies eat Mustard Greens? Hope so I bought some along with some Cilantro. Needed to try something different. He won't eat his broccoli or cauliflower he used it eat it. So I thought I'd give it a try.
HELP what's happening with my beardie!!he has a lifted up scale and it has shedding in a circle around it I noticed it for the first time yesterday and I have no idea what it is and when I shine a flashlight on him it's yellow around the scale what do I doooo
My female bearded dragon has recently started gasping for air all the time. She can’t get sleep or really do anything because she has such a difficult time breathing. I think it might be a RI but I’m not completely sure. Any thoughts?
