For a long while, I will hear a "clicking" sound come from Nami, ONLY when she's out of her tank and with me. She will also breathe with her mouth open, majority of the time while she's basking in her tank or out in the sun. Once in a while she will "cough", which happens less than once a week.

Part of me suspects a possible respiratory infection but what has me confused is the fact she only does this stuff outside the tank, at certain times.
She has no other symptoms, she's alert, eating well, and will still run around when I have her out.

Humidity is mid 20s

Sounds like shes gaping which is adjusting her body temp- the clicking out side the tank is odd and only at certain times- RI's have other symptoms as well - discharge out of the nose extra saliva wheezing etc - make sure shes got good surface basking temps taken w/ a digital probe thermometer 95-100 a good UVB NO coils please and I would try and get the humidity up a little bit if you can - that should be taken w a/ digital probe hygrometer - you can place a wet dish towel / cloth in the tank to bring it up 40-50 is optimal

i feel so sad reading your about me 😢
Clapton is acclimating okay I think. He's quick as lightning so I'm not sure how much I should bring him out of his house yet. He's not at all interested in his salad though. I wonder if I should change what I'm giving him. Least he's eating his crickets.

Things to do:
Buy calcium powder
Material to raise surface for basking spot
Scenery decals for back of tank
Taking my beardie for a walk
Hi everyone, I have a question please. I have a thick branch I got from outside. It has been in freezing temperatures so I know that it is insect free. I took it off the ground and sat it up during a night we got down to 15 so the entire thing would freeze. Well tonight I put white vinegar all over it too cleanse it since it won't fit in my oven. Do I need to rinse with water tomorrow or is it fine left alone dried?
