hello everybody, I have had a bioactive setup for a while now, all my info on my care is in my bio thingy, I was wondering if it was safe to put mealworm Beatles (since I have plenty) inside of his 120gallon tank? do you think it's a good idea? or are they harmful in any way to him? i can go over my care if needed thank you!

Yes, some people put darkling beetles in their bioactive tank. They are edible , although they mostly stay hidden, but can function as part of the clean up crew.

Currently trying not to stress over my anemic dragon....she is being treated, but I don't agree with her treatment plan and have been seeking out a second opinion from another vet. If anyone else has dealt with anemia, please let me know how it was resolved. I am losing sleep over this :cry:
Another post lol. My beardie does not like enclosures. Her tank is the kids room and she has created a nesting/bed spot in the corner. She will cuddle with my son but she know when the lights are out and the kids go to sleep, she literally goes to her bed like she is our 3rd baby. I love her. And to think, I never wanted a beardie lol
Please help. My beardie is my baby and I am worried she may be egg bound but I can't tell. She is over 2 yrs old and has never laid an egg. She has been swollen for two days and can't tell if she may be impacted or egg bound. Please help.
I'm still looking to adopt. I live near Homerville Georgia.
