Please NO colored bulbs at all!! Please get a solid clear bright white basking bulb examples are Flukers Exo Terra Intense Arcadia Halogen or Zoo Med Repti basking bulb-- NO heat mats please -- please get 2 digital probe thermometers for the basking side and the cool side --- temps should be 95-100 for a adult / juvie dragon and 105-110 for a baby-- please get a long tube fixture for a UVB here are some links to some of this stuff so you know what I am talking about - this stuff needs to be gotten as soon as possible for your dragon to be healthy and stay that way --
24" Zoo Med for a 40+ gallon tank Zoo Med ReptiSun T5 HO Hood this will come w/ a 5.0 bulb perfect for 20 gallon tanks you will need this bulb for a 40 + 22" Zoo Med ReptiSun 10.0 UVB T5 HO
or look for this fixture at Pet Smart they have now started carrying them
24" Arcadia ProT5 12% UVB Bulb With Hood you want the 12% bulb --

The coil UVB needs to be replaced immediately-- your dragon is getting NO UVB w/ it and they cause all kinds of health issues -- please shut it off and start taking her outside for good UVB 30 minutes per day till you get it replaced -- your screen is a wide hole type the UVB can go on top but it needs to be replaced -- I would look at getting rid of the sand and replace w/ some textured NON adhesive shelf liner found at Walmart or your local home improvement store -- and if that day light has a coating on it called neoyidium please replace w/ a Flukers-- Exo Terra Intense-- Zoo Med Repti basking-- or a Arcadia Halogen - the day time bulbs have coating on them that causes all kinds of eye issues 95-100--- your basking light should keep temps to what you need them dragons heat from their backs not stomachs - ambient temp in the tank hot side can be around 100 or in the 90's - if the wattage of the bulb is not hot enough either go up or get another single dome place beside it and use a lower watt like a 75 but you must have the digital probe placed on where she sits for basking so you know what that temp is --

setting up a tank for a garter snake in a few months!!
Trying to finish setting up my beardie tank. Just gotta connect it to the power.
Okay lol so as I was told my baby was a boy when I rescued him hehe well I took him to my vet and was advised he is a she ! I was thinking of renaming her to Virgo from Toothless any suggestions for names 😊🥰
I am new and looking for a teen beardie. I have been doing a lot of research for about 2 years.
I'm new here but not new to dragons or snakes. Over the 7 years. I opened my heart and home to neglected. unwanted dras and snakes, some critical conditions. Then nursing them back to health and their final family home. I regularly help my reptiles vet with emergency appointments and I also provide the care in my little quenteen,
