I miss you, my Titan, Rest in Peace

I found Titan in Jan/13, in the pet shop where I buy my bugs. He was about 4 months old, had been abandoned there by his owners, with a burned head & left side of his face. I knew the lady who ran the reptile room, so immediately asked her if I could hold him and this was our pattern until I was able to raise the funds to bring him home in Mar/13. I took him to my vet, he was treated for the burns. He ate ALOT, gained a lot of weight and was healthy and happy. Then in Sept I noticed a lesion on his left side of his body and took him back to the vet, he was treated for a bacterial infection over 3 weeks. Then I noticed that the rash was worse, so had a biopsy done & he was diagnosed with Yellow Fungus, almost always a fatal disease in dragons. So I got the meds he needed & started him on anti-fungal cream, plus supplements to strengthen his immune system. Mid November he shed his whole body & even though I continued the meds & supplements I thought we had a good chance of beating this terrible disease. He was fine for a couple of weeks, but when I took him back to the vet at the end of November, he'd lost 200g and was in a lot of pain, the disease was everywhere. On Dec 19 I took him to the vet for the last time and said goodbye to my sweet Titan. He was only 1 1/2 yrs old. Now he's over the Rainbow Bridge with Sweetie, Issy, Loish and Angel and all the other lost beardies, healthy and playing...that's how I always picture him.

Thanks Gina for making this tribute for him:

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?
