My bearded dragon keeps trying to climb everything.

At first he was living in a 40 gallon tank, but I recently got him a 120 gallon one. Beforehand, he kept trying to climb the walls of the tank but kept falling over and trying again. I figured if I got him a bigger one, he would have more room to run around. However, he just keeps doing the same thing over and over again and it's driving me crazy hearing all that noise when I'm trying to work or sleep. All the temperatures are correct and I let him out regularly. If this keeps up I might just go insane since I don't know what he wants.

Something is off in the tank --- what kind of UVB are you using and where is it? coil or a long tube fixture? He should NOT be doing this at night --- no lights on at night dark and cool 65-75 for temps --- what is the temps in the tank during the day and what are his surface basking temps? Those should be taken w/ a digital probe thermometer --

He does it mostly in the daytime, but I like to take naps. I have the T5 Reptisun strip bulb, and the temperatures are 100 on the basking spot, and is 75 on the cool side.

Where is the T5, on top of the screen or inside the enclosure and how far away from the basking spot? Also, is it a 10.0 bulb or the 5.0 that comes with the Reptisun fixture?

is my bearded dragons left side supposed to be hard, it’s right above its left leg in the back, it’s kind of hard? i feed it insects and greens. not sure if it’s normal or not? i can post pictures.
His first vet visit went well! Abelardo Texas looks good physically according to his new Dr.
Unfortunately, on the fecal it showed that he has Coccidia. Not a surprise honestly... he has been having diarrhea since I got him. I got Albon, F10, and a steam cleaner on hand.
I'm kinda freaked out, I heard coccidia is a beast to get rid of. Wish me luck! 😭
Sorry didn’t mean to post the last post was an accident, but I do have a question I have a 7 month old dragon, her name is Smaug and she will not eat her salad I have tried everything that I can, just wondering if anyone can help me because I’m stuck and I know that she should probably be eating them by now! If anyone can give me ideas that would be great!
