Is your uvb a T 8 or T 5? A reflector is in a hood / fixture that is behind the bulb and it's shiny it looks like tin foil-- it reflects the UVB rays downward toward the dragon of which you want--- look on your tube and look for T 5 or T 8! There is certain distance for each bulb

Hiya can not see t5 or t8 on it. Calling the reptile place tomorrow to find out what one it is.
Do you have any ideas to tempt her with food?

OK I am looking into the lighting.
She has eaten some greens herself it just seems like bugs she is not interested in. We have dubias, locusts and wax worms. She has been to the toilet every day. A slight amount. But it's got a very slight pink tinge to the white.

Pic below. It looks darker in picture. The little cream flecks are from where I got wax worms out of the box and the stuff they are in fell in viv. That's all now cleaned up

Your basking temps and UVB are going to play a huge role in the poop and digestion of the dragon -- are you feeding any supplements and if so what are they? Limit the wax worms please they are very fatty and if fed too often and too many can cause liver issues -- you might look into super worms and some horn worms they are a better treat -- silk worms are a good staple feeder --

Is there anything else I can do? Seeing a reptile vet finally. So hard to get one to see her as either not a reptile specialist or booked up

Once you get the reflector on the UVB that is going to help -- they wont eat if they are not getting proper UVB --- and from this point shes not getting it --- once you get that reflector installed and correctly positioned she should start eating --- and her poops should straighten out as well
