Forgive me for how many posts I make on here guys lol I just am so cautious about everything and want to do the best possible things for my beardie. anyways, quick backstory. She’s maybe 3-4yrs old according to the vet. Has MBD. Missing 4 toes. Was found in a Petco dumpster. So that’s why she looks well, like that. But I just wanted to ask about her tail… does this look like tail rot, or just stuck shed, ooooor I hear beardies will make their tails black sometimes as they do with other parts of their body ? Wanted to get some advice. I just gave her a bath in hopes of helping any shed if that is the case. In most cases I’ve seen of tail rot it looks pretty noticeable and nasty, but her tail as you can see is just like, black from what I can tell. but I don’t know. I wanted second opinions 😣

Thank you guys, that makes sense. I have another unrelated question as well. This girl is a bit underweight. She is a good eater though, she loves dubia roaches and her salads etc.... butshould I be doing anything more to help her with gaining weight? Should I use Reptiboost or anything like that?

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?
