Julian is always Brown


Hatchling Member
My lad julian is a adult male green anole. When we got him he was green and pretty. After about 2 weeks we moved my bearded dragons tank and forgot to cover the side of the tank. Poor julian had to sit there for a few days with a dragon licking his chops watching his every move. We took care of this but he still wont turn green. He cant see any animals.he lived alone until yesterday i got some baby american toads from my window well. I dont think he cares for them though. What do i do to make him less stressed. Also i never see him eat or drink. I refill his dish so he eats but how can i gain his trust to be able to watch him. Also im working on a 40 gal for him that hel live in with some other anoles and fire belly toads that i havent bought yet

Do you have any pictures of Julian?
Are you using a UVB light for him also? He does need a good UVB light, that might help
him out. We can review your tank setup, lighting, etc just to be sure it is all correct.

alot of my husbantry could be improved a few months ago. im getting better and im learning about how i need to improove.
so far, ive moved my leo out of the 10 gal she had been in to a big bioactive exoterra where she has been really happy. (yay =D) i need to improove my dragons out of the tanks they are in now and into 4 b 2 by 2s and the anole. planning on using arcadia uvb and some dimming thermostats for each.

My female bearded dragon has recently started gasping for air all the time. She can’t get sleep or really do anything because she has such a difficult time breathing. I think it might be a RI but I’m not completely sure. Any thoughts?
