Impaction

Can beardies poop if they are impacted? Generally if they poop daily it is not likely they are impacted, right?
I just noticed my beardie kinda hobbling when he walks and he hasn’t been moving too much in the past day or so. He’s had two poos since yesterday.
What else could this be?
Prior to decrease in his appetite he was eating 50 dubias per day along with greens and squash. Calcium dusted daily, multivitamin twice per week.
I did have to change my UVB today as it has been 6 months.

Any advice would be appreciated

Wow that's a lot of roaches- how big are the roaches my 2 never ate that many- please change the bulb out in 5 months- and he is not impacted if he's pooping- I am thinking it's not enough uvb if he's walking funny- watch him w/ your new bulb now

Well when he had small roaches he was eating 50 per day, we switched to medium size and went down to 30 per day. I figure maybe it’s the change in the size of roach combined with not enough UVB. Please keep him in your thoughts that’s it’s nothing serious and he gets better in the next few days. Thanks so much for your reply!!

If I were you I would add another staple insect --- too many roaches can cause gout --

I just set Swordtail's timer for his bath and paused it so I could actually fill his soaking bowl up and he crawled over my phone and canceled the timer 🤣
Mirage came out of brumation on April 26. He was doing great. On May 2 he started acting funny. We just redid his tank, and he keeps going into one of his hides. He just lays there. He shows no intrest in food. HELP!
is tape safe for fixing something in my leopard geckos hide?
Day 3 of brumation. It's a struggle. I really miss my little guy. 😔
