Pre Owned Beardie Tank


I recently bought a 50 Gallon terrarium for my beardie from a friend. They used it for a bearded dragon before, and gave me all the things they used for their pet. I am wondering what I should use to clean the tank out and all the items so that they don’t smell like another beardie (my dragon is a male). I have heard of using distilled white vinegar, wondering if this is effective? I didn’t think you could use any type of chemical cleaner because they’re toxic to beardies. Any tips?

Vinegar mixed with water (half and half) should do the trick. Wipe it down thoroughly.

F10 is another good cleaner.
Here is a thread discussing how to use it.

F 10 can be found on Walmarts website --- it is spendy but a good disinfectant along w/ Rescue or Zoo Meds Wipe Out

I have questions about bubbles on our bearded dragons eye.

So he’s gotten bubbles on his eye. We wiped them off and it’s only been twice in the last few weeks. Should we be concerned? No coughing or congestion. He’s very hungry and sleeps well. He’s 8-9 month range. His humidity is 30-40 day time and as high as 50-55 at night to early morning.
Should we be concerned?

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
