Does anyone in here use the jungle dawn led light made by arcadia? I use it as it emits other spectrums of sunlight such as Pur, par , and cri which uvb is just one of the many Ray's of sunlight. This led bar is new technology with the most close to natural looking sunlight it isnt a standard in reptile keeping yet but maybe in the future it will be held to be a standard in the keeping. They say it activates their third eye which is their pineal gland the same as what they use to sense when a predator is above them, The jungle dawn led bar makes your beardie much more active and improves cognitive function such as feeding responses and other things like interacting with the light which they do do as without UVA they cannot see color which most basking bulbs do emit UVA it defitentlty "activates the "third eye" as I seen the diffrence first hand since getting this light fixture ofcourse I have the t5 ho uvb my fixture for my t5 is also made by Arcadia . Do the research yourself it's there on another note i plan to keep this an on going threadof my Terrarium and princess Luna

Great pics and I'm sure she loves her natural habitat. ?
Haven't decided what I'm gonna do for Petey's new viv, don't have it yet, but considering a 50/50 bio and slate tile. Or maybe just a small section he can dig around in. Haven't decided. It's gonna be awhile but good to know there is an option and someone with bio experience. ?

NICE? Love that big viv! ❤ wish I had a place to put something that size. Still looking for a 55 inch one like that.
Try to get up with a moderator and see if they can move this to Beardie Tales or start a new thread there so you can keep us updated on Luna. ?

i feel so sad reading your about me 😢
Clapton is acclimating okay I think. He's quick as lightning so I'm not sure how much I should bring him out of his house yet. He's not at all interested in his salad though. I wonder if I should change what I'm giving him. Least he's eating his crickets.

Things to do:
Buy calcium powder
Material to raise surface for basking spot
Scenery decals for back of tank
Taking my beardie for a walk
Hi everyone, I have a question please. I have a thick branch I got from outside. It has been in freezing temperatures so I know that it is insect free. I took it off the ground and sat it up during a night we got down to 15 so the entire thing would freeze. Well tonight I put white vinegar all over it too cleanse it since it won't fit in my oven. Do I need to rinse with water tomorrow or is it fine left alone dried?
