Hi there and thanks for the info. The watt is 75. If I am remembering correctly, I had got him a bigger watt because the past watt (50-55) was not warming him up after being under it for 30 mins to an hour. Should I go back down? I have moved his light since (away from the rock so hes not closer to it)
Try the position first before adjusting wattage- but you need those digital probe thermometers - those are crucial -- once you get the surface basking temps then we will go from there

Hey everyone, I have been keeping up with his honey treatment and had spoken to a good friend of mine. He's been keeping reptiles for as long as I can remember and when I had told him about Zeus he suggested it was scale rot. His current beardie is going through the same issue and we both compared beardies and had thought it was scale rot. Let me know what you all think.

Not scale rot but it is trauma. Scale rot is caused by a too damp environment and would affect the lower belly area that is in contact with the damp substrate. This is scale damage caused by [ possibly ] a burn.
Can you post a pic of your friend's dragon ?

I don't have a photo but I could try and ask. When he was explaining what was wrong with his beardie he mentioned a slight hole, I can't remember where exactly but I vaguely remember him saying that due to my shocked reaction.
