So in my 120 gallon, I have 4 big rocks that I have stacked up and ones an incline, my beardie will jab and try to eat the rock, its sandstone, ill provide a pick the the rocks and her mouth, idk if its just a scab from the rocks or mouth rot, it was darker and feels scab like but its gotten lighter.

That looks like it comes from glass surfing or rubbing - Hiccup has one of those on his mouth as well -- from glass surfing -- its not mouth rot

I rarely see her glass surf now that I moved her out of a 40 gallon but it very well could be, I just know she tries to eat the rocks so lol im just being extra cautious and hoping all is well, it gived her the perfect height between her basking and UVB, she sleeps up there only gets down to eat and drink she climbs on the steps, she makes those 4 rocks a playground for herself and there setup in a way that between the tower and the incline she has a space to lay down in there, she loves it and I was hoping I wouldn't have to take them away from her because she's trying to eat them then having her mouth be all sabbed.Thank you!

If shes trying to eat the rocks shes lacking something in her diet -- what supplements are you feeding?

I dust her bugs in calcium with Vitamin D and without, I alternate those. I feed her a variety so BSFL and a couple wax worms occasionally in the mornings, and dubias for dinner and hornworms for dinner. I have greens in there 24/7, she will only eat kale but within the kale is bell peppers and carrots, she always has a water bowl in there as well, It might be because one of the rocks has holes like swiss cheese but it doesnt go all the way through the rock lol and I cleaned the rock but she jabs at those holes maybe thinking she thinks theres something in there. Please correct her diet if im off

If your not giving a multivitamin, you should add that to her diet 3 to 4 days per week
