Hello all. I've just recently adopted my first 2 Beardies. They are awesome. They are about 6 months old, and I've determined one is female and one is male. I've decided to name them Izzy (my girl) and Ozzy (my boy). I've had them a little over a week. So my pictures are a little rough. As I get their tank built up, I'll be taking more pics. But here's what I got for now.

Here's Ozzy

for now

I was wondering, I've been told I can have 2 Beardies in a 55gal (min) tank, as long as they grew up together, and aren't same sex. I haven't seen any issues so far. I've been thinking of picking up a second tank just in case. Also I find that my male is digging....it's kinda weird. He's got the two bumps on the tail, which is why I think he's male. My female is a little smaller, and has the one bump on her tail. Any advice you can give to a new owner would be greatly appreciated.

Oh by the way, My name is Nicholle, I'm married and have a 3 year old, a Rottie named Athena (dog), Apollo (our cat), Dragon (leopard gecko), and 2 fish.

Welcome! :wave: This is a great community w/lots of experienced beardie slaves to help newbies like us. I have been told not to house beardies together, no matter what. My boys live in seperate enclosures. U can even move one into a large plastic tote for a quick fix. There is a great care sheet on the home page that covers all the basics. Forget anything u've been told by petstores :bleick: they r full of bad info.

Please don't hesitate to ask anything u r not sure about!
