A thread chronicling Hugo's journey (and mine) Because I take hundreds of pictures and need to put them somewhere!

After TONS of help from other users, I got his new UV bulb set up this morning and he was in love with it. Had to shuffle a few things around in his starter tank so he could get optimal basking in, but overall, he seemed pleased!

This is post-breakfast buffet :) I've got some dubia roaches coming in next week and I'm friggin' excited to see how he likes them. So far, Hugo has eaten everything I've offered and been phenomenal about hand feeding despite being such a young dude. We've had him about four days!

Current goal is to put a bit of weight on him slowly but steadily, I've been letting him graze daily and offering him as many crickets as he wants x3 daily until he seems disinterested or lets me know (by pawing) that he'd like to go back to his tank. We feed him in a separate tub so he doesn't bang into anything during feeding time, plus it allows me to gently handle him at least twice daily.

Might just be biased, but he's the best little dude.

I have questions about bubbles on our bearded dragons eye.

So he’s gotten bubbles on his eye. We wiped them off and it’s only been twice in the last few weeks. Should we be concerned? No coughing or congestion. He’s very hungry and sleeps well. He’s 8-9 month range. His humidity is 30-40 day time and as high as 50-55 at night to early morning.
Should we be concerned?

Currently trying not to stress over my anemic dragon....she is being treated, but I don't agree with her treatment plan and have been seeking out a second opinion from another vet. If anyone else has dealt with anemia, please let me know how it was resolved. I am losing sleep over this :cry:
Another post lol. My beardie does not like enclosures. Her tank is the kids room and she has created a nesting/bed spot in the corner. She will cuddle with my son but she know when the lights are out and the kids go to sleep, she literally goes to her bed like she is our 3rd baby. I love her. And to think, I never wanted a beardie lol
