thank you so much! i’ve had plenty of beardies die on me for years and she’s the one that lasted the longest, i take her health very serious. i just needed something to calm my worries
Make sure she has correct uvb- no coils - good surface basking temps-- taken w/ a digital probe thermometer-

i have a basking light, but the uv bulbs i always get with coils please elaborate
You want a long tube fixture like a 24 watt Arcadia pro T 5 w/ a 12% bulb or a 24"zoo med w/ a reptisun 10.0 T 5 or a sun blaster nano tech -- I can post links for you in the morning if you like -- coils are in adequate and are no good - they cause too many health issues-

Please no colored bulbs ---- they can damage eyes --- do not use it--
24" Zoo Med fixture for a 40 + gallon tank this will come w/ a 5.0 bulb keep it for back up you want this bulb 22" Reptisun 10.0 T 5 Zoo Med ReptiSun 10.0 UVB T5 HO
and this place is out of the 24" you can use the 30" Zoo Med ReptiSun T5 HO Hood
or this one check Pet Smart if you have one or try ordering it on line - you want the 12% bulb
or this one you will need to change the bulb out to the Reptisun 22" bulb 10.0 T 5 or use the Arcadia 12% bulb as well
when you get the fixture please post back on here so I can help you place it for your tank - your screen will determine where the UVB needs to go

No night light --- if your tank is between 65-75 at night hes good- dragons need cool and dark for a good nights rest -- if you need heat at night because the tank is getting too cold below 65 then you would need a ceramic heat emitter -- or a CHE you will need a dome fixture and for a 40 gallon tank I would say a 60 watt or so - these produce heat NO light --- try the 60 if you need it and see what kind of temps your getting over night -- 65-75 ambient temp --

I would try and get one in store so if the 60 watt is not high enough you can take it back and exchange the bulb for a 100 watt --- keep your receipt so you dont have issues --

What type of flooring is she on ? Although this is most likely nothing to be worried about you can be proactive and get some Lamisil antifungal cream to put on for a while.

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?
