I am confused -- you posted a pic of a 18" fixture -- which are you using ? the 18" or a 24" ? I would swap out the hammock for a cloth one or a fleece one --- www.pamperedbeardies.com or try www.etsy.com - we see a lot of foot and nail injuries from the green mesh and braided hammocks -- the UVB's have certain distance and placement for a T 5 and a T 8 that is why I am trying to clarify the bulb --- screens also block 30% of the rays so we need to place for screen as well
I have an 18” t5 10.0 zoo med uvb stick it is under the mesh lid

Ok so w/ that being said please make sure the T 5 is directly over the basking decor - that UVB is going to help heal the toe --- are there any other swelling going on w/ the feet or just the one toe? Trying to rule out gout as a possibility as well - what insects are you feeding?
I am using only super worms, I know that they are treat like and shouldn’t be the only insect feed

18" are usually T 8's I dont think they come in T 5's - look on the bulb and look for a T 5 or T 8 it will tell you or look at the box - the distance is going to be different between the two bulbs --- please get him on a staple insect --- dubia roaches I recommend those or crickets or silk worms or BSFL those you will need a lot of as they are small --- I think we can safely say its not gout since your not feeding dubias as they are high in uric acid and too many of them can cause gout -- so I think he has gotten his nail caught in the hammock

Oh lord another uneducated parent -- go for the BSFL then they are like a worm -- www.symtonbsf.com order large -- how old is the dragon? are you dusting calcium on anything ? what about salads are you feeding them?

I am educated, I dust her insects and salads in calcium with d3 every 3-4 days ,multivitamins once a week, and be pollen the rest of the days, she is about 3 1/2 and has collard green salads

Sorry I thought you were a juvenile in high school --- we see alot of the parents not letting the kids feed a good staple feeder-- is she eating those salads? If so that is good - she should be getting protein at least 2-3 times per week -- that would be dubias crickets silk worms or BSFL -- the D3 should be fed once or twice a week depending on that UVB bulb you have --- if its a T 8 more often if its a T 5 the once or twice a week -

is my bearded dragons left side supposed to be hard, it’s right above its left leg in the back, it’s kind of hard? i feed it insects and greens. not sure if it’s normal or not? i can post pictures.
His first vet visit went well! Abelardo Texas looks good physically according to his new Dr.
Unfortunately, on the fecal it showed that he has Coccidia. Not a surprise honestly... he has been having diarrhea since I got him. I got Albon, F10, and a steam cleaner on hand.
I'm kinda freaked out, I heard coccidia is a beast to get rid of. Wish me luck! 😭
Sorry didn’t mean to post the last post was an accident, but I do have a question I have a 7 month old dragon, her name is Smaug and she will not eat her salad I have tried everything that I can, just wondering if anyone can help me because I’m stuck and I know that she should probably be eating them by now! If anyone can give me ideas that would be great!
