Your dragon will not eat w/ out correct UVB -- please get it changed out -- when you get the new one please post back on here I can help you place it for your tank - the screen will determine where it goes - distance and placement is crucial
I appreciate the feedback. As far as I can tell, most all animals can have some form of love or comfort attachment to another. It is just usually unnoticed by most casual observers it seems. Bearded Dragons are definitely one of the comfort/attachment capable types.For that bulb on top of a screen, the basking spot should be closer, like 10-12 inches. Otherwise mounted inside 12-15 inches above, so your 14 inches would be perfect.
I'm very sorry you're going through this. I never imagined someone could get so attached to a lizard until I got to know my little guy as a house pet at work. Definitely never thought I would be bringing him home when we shut down and he needed a new place. Now I can't imagine life without him. I'll be sending positive vibes your way.
Please get the UVB inside the tank --- 12-15 inches directly above the basking decor ---Well lately she has been spending more time in her hide. She has went from coming out daily for a couple days for UV light and a few worms. Now she is not coming out again and not wanting to eat.
Please show me a pic of the screen please from aboveI would have to remove the screen which keeps the cats out to lower that light. I don't think I can do that.
Can you give me an idea of how much the UVB light is killed by going through a 1x1mm mesh? I would like to understand the math. Thank you.
