Hello, I wanted so see if there’s something wrong with my boy, he’s probably about a year old now, or just shy of, I noticed recently his poop is looking a little flakey???? Idk how to describe it, I have a picture here (about a day old) and I just don’t think it looks healthy, not what I’m used to anyways. Nothing has changed really with his diet. He’s getting about 5-10 1 inch dubias a day (if I should be doing different please let me know every where I read says something else), calcium pretty much every other day as I was told because my uvb is a T8 (I know I should get a T5). Kale every day with bee pollen, and a day or so out of the week I give him a reptivitamin. He HATES water so I really missed down his salad because he will not soak and absolutely will not willingly drink water. I will also say my boy actively avoids his uvb light I’m hopping to get one that covers the entire cage here soon. But please help me out here!!! Also here’s my boy he’s about 19.5 inches.

Edit: I know the uvb is outside of his cage, I promise it isn’t normally Like that, the holder broke the other day, so I have to leave it on top till I can get to the store

Your uvb is in a fixture w/ reflector? You said holder- what is that? If this is a first time thing w/ the poop just watch it and see if it goes back to normal ones he poops out- the uvb is it on the side wall when in the tank or directly above him?

These poops have been going on for about a month, I just wanted to see if they would go away on their own but they didn’t, and yes the uvb has a reflector in it, and by holder I just meant the way I mounted it in the take, the mounts broke, and the uvb is on the side wall, his tank is an old 75 gallon fish tank so I don’t really have a way to mount it in the middle of the tank

Ok please try to get it directly overhead -- this could be a good reason why hes hiding from it or not getting any UVB---- it needs to be directly over him - we dont advise on the wall because it shines in their eyes

Well if you could give me a suggestion on how I would really appreciate it, he’s in a 75 gallon fish tank, there is a support in the middle, and my lid has to completely lift off to get him out, here’s some pictures

Ok so to make sure we have the correct bulb please look on the UVB bulb and tell me if its a T 5 or a T8 -- you have a wide hole screen the T 5 can stay on top but the T 8 must be unobstructed --- the writing on the bulb will give brand and wattage and T 5 or T 8

As I said in my original post I have a T8 and it normally sits inside on the back wall, the way I had it mounted broke so now I have to have it sit on top till I can get to the store, my question is how to hang it in the middle of the cage not the back wall, because his tank is an only 75 gallon fish tank, so it has a support in the middle and my cage lit lifts completely off, so how would I be able to support the uvb in the middle of the cage

Get some long plastic zip ties or picture wire hangers and use those- you may haft to.snip.the screen but it must go inside the tank + basking decor directly under the uvb 6-8 inches- bulb needs to be changed out in 5 months

Hello, I having similar problem with my beardie.
I was wondering if that weird poop went away. Thanks in advance. I tried everything already....changed basking temps and platforms. Have the best uvb in the market. Even change the bulb in case if it was defected. Still have that poop. I'll attach some pics for you to compare with what you your beardie had. Maybe someone else will get some ideas.

It looks like undigested bugs- how are you getting surface basking temps--

I used to have a hammock as a basking spot. I probe the temp and it was from 105-113. Since I run out of ideas what else it could be I change 3 days ago a basking spot on cider block so she can get more heat from surface as well. And it's about 104 now.

It's been over the month she has that poop. She is eating pretty good but not as much as she had. She's about 7-8 month old and weight going up. It's not really effect her growth but it's still concerning to me. I think she's not active as she used to be. I even change the uvb bulb even it's like 3 month old. I don't know what else I could do. I'm thinking cut of her on food for a few days.

Do not cut the food - she's still growing- older dragons like temps around 95-100- how long is she basking under the hotter temps?

She usually does it in the morning and stays like 30 min. After feeding the same thing about 20-30 min. Then she can hiding or used to go under the hammock.

Now she's laying like that about 2 hours and could not even move before I'll start feeding her again .

Hi I have a hypo bearded dragon called Buddy. He is two, and I have a lot of experience looking after him. He has never benn sick before so I am hoping he will not!
Hello , im still figureing out this platform,
So violet laid eggs, weeks ago, she was doing very well , in the last 3 to 4 days her poop was more than runny . Haven't changed much in her diet , an appetite is very good. Should I be considering a parasites remedy as she does get bloated as soon as she starts to eat.
