Ok good make sure its 12-15 inches directly over the basking decor unobstructed-- if you have a wide holed screen it can sit on top but you want that distance of 8-10 inches

Let's have ahbd help youUPDATE:
Marvin is still struggling. No better, no worse. We knew this recovery was going to take a long time, but it breaks my heart to see him like this.
He’s refused food again today. It looks like we’re going to have to force feed him.
Does anybody have any tips on force feeding a baby beardie?
Thank you!You can find tips on assist feeding on Youtube, seeing it is better than describing.
The baby might be acting this way due to infection but it also might be from the lack of uvb , the bulb you replaced might help but it's just the first day so see if there's improvement after a few days with the good uvb.
Thank you, I will look into itIf you have to feed him (i don't like the idea of forcing it) you can get oxbow omnivore and carnivore critical care on amazon. I've used the omnivore with good success. You can mix it to whatever consistency you need and the omnivore smells good enough that i considered trying it lol. But anyway just use a syringe to put it on his nose, he should start lapping at it. If he doesn't you can gently pull down his lip (it's easiest back near the rear) and put a little dollop on his gums so he taste it. For a baby i would probably use mostly the carnivore they need the protein. I think you can most likely avoid having to force feed him using the oxbow stuff. Seems a lot safer to me.
