Maya's basking spots are neck pillows, sheets, homemade cushions, and pillowcases. I created a special needs tank out of what I had available in the house at the time and funds are short since I used the majority of the funds I had in savings for vet visits.

He had a problem with his toe nails because they were quite long and the quick was causing him pain. I have since filed his nails and he can now walk with out staggering or falling to the side. He just started to regain his strength in his front legs. (That's where the issues were most noticeable. Day by day, I know this isn't right to have the soft items in his tank. I want to give him the opportunity to be able to 'strengthen his front legs and even his back legs.

Does anyone have any suggestions on what basking platforms to use? I cannot find a lot here.
The tank is on tray tables. I don't know how much weight they can handle. I also am planning to buy a desk for him once I get the money.
I have a fabric hammock. That can be used too. But, I heard some information that Hammocks aren't that good as a basking spot platform.

hammocks are fine for basking spots. the main issue with them is when people try to get temps off them with an IR gun because the gun can't read off them correctly. if you're using digital probe thermometers, there should be no problem. getting the right temp at that spot is what is important. since yours is fabric, you don't have to worry about the second issue for hammocks, which is toes getting caught in them.

I'll go searching for them. I have them in a storage box next to his tank. He'll be able to use them without his nails getting stuck. I'm sure he'll like hanging off them or clinging to the sides. I sewed them myself by hand. So, anything I do, he loves. :)

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.
