Introducing larger tank

Beardie name(s)
Today went from a 20 gal to a 67 gal tank. Concerned about lighting moved the old double zoo med to the left of larger tank top 75watt basking with a coil UV. I’m not sure if I should upgrade the basking bulb to 100 watt?? Purchased a 18in 5.0 UV for the left side of the larger tank also for additional UV and light. She definitely noticed the change of the tank and seems rather bothered but I’m hoping she will adjust. Is that common? I put her old carpet in hoping it would comfort her. She wouldn’t eat any crickets this evening but was able to get her to eat a few meal worms. This is my first beardie so I’m hoping to get some advice or any helpful suggestions.

My beardie was getting rather slow and not eating as usual I had already used the UVB and had a 100w basking. I just recently increased the 100w basking to a 150w and she is just full of life right now, chasing her crickets again and acting like herself. I think the temp is finally correct for her and it also brought down the humidity which is a plus. I am a lil worried about the 150w light on the metal top. It is a really well built Repti zoo cage made for reptiles but can anyone tell me if 150 w on the metal top is too much?
Did you swap out the 5.0 bulb? The 150 is fine as long as it's not closer than 6" to her and keeping basking surface temps to what you need -

Yes I put the 10 in
So w / the T 8 it should be NO screen - T 8's cannot go thru screen - so unobstruct the UVB and have your UVB directly over a piece of basking decor 6-8 inches -- the 18 inch UVB will need to be upgraded to a 24" for a bigger tank --- 120 gallon is the most optimal for a full size / juvie dragon --

Wow I haven't logged in for years. Hi!
So to any reading this, how on earth do I post a thread 😅 New here, possibly too old for this

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?
