Your dragon will not eat w/ out proper surface basking temps and UVB ----- basking temps need to be taken w/ a digital probe thermometer temps should be 95-100-- a good quality UVB they are not all the same -- NO COILS ---- please post a pic of the tank and his lighting -- how long has he been off the meds the dragon should be eating on his own --

I see stick ons for a temp gauge--- you need a digital probe thermometer placed on the spot where he sits for basking 95-100 --- you dont need to leave it there but should spot check every couple of weeks as basking bulbs lose their intensity --- where is the UVB? If you using a coil in one of those domes it needs to go NOW and be replaced w/ a long tube fixture!! Not all long tube fixtures are of good quality we can recommend 3 ---- he will not eat w/out proper surface basking temps and UVB

Hello,

Which parasite was he diagnosed with, coccidia?
Do you know what medication he is on right now, or
is he off of them now?
Most times, following medication rounds they will lose
their appetites for a time. You can try using some
probiotics such as non dairy organic soy yogurt or some
non dairy acidophilus either one to help restore his gut
flora. Do you have any bee pollen to help with his overall
appetite & boost his system following medication?

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?
