i'm no pro, but if it was my dragon, i would take the bandage off. the rest of the things you are doing sound more than appropriate based on what i have seen others talk about on here. the bandage makes me worry about little bits being eaten, and also bacteria growing under it. i think treatment and then being in the ambient air would be better. anyone else agree/disagree???
How many times should do the betadine process a day?

Update: ‼️‼️I found my beardie this morning with the black tip gone seems that that it fell off during night time. So I wanna head and did the betadine process and Neosporin and placed A tiny bandage. I am keeping a close eye on it to see if it further travels up to tail. I will repeat the process tomorrow.
I would get some raw unpasteurized honey on it -- please leave no crickets in the tank if your feeding them - the honey is going to prevent infection and promote healing - let it scab over - and watch for black - if it gets black that would be a sign of infection

How long can a 2 month beardie sleep on me for? It had 12 small crickets along with watered kale. It’s basking since he last feeding

I leave mine out for 2 hrs then back in the tank-- he needs 2-3 hrs before lights out
This a first lol I’ve heard many call is “sexy legs”? Is this correct or should be worried?

Ok that's a first- usually humidity goes up at night and down during the day- where is the hygrometer? And are you using a digital or a analog?

I currently have an analog. It’s currently reading 45% humidity. I’m really leaning towards a digital one. Whats your opinion?
Thank you

Hello,

How is the tail looking? I don't think it is anything serious,
since it isn't infected or anything. A lot of dragons lose tips
of their tails, or more sometimes.
You can continue to put ointment on the area to keep it moist
if needed. Otherwise just keep an eye it to be sure no infection
develops.

How often should I feed my baby beardie crickets / meal worm covered in calcium?
Thank you
Please no meal worms for babies the exoskeleton is too harsh on their stomachs- they should have calcium D3 5 x per week lightly coated ONCE per feeding on the main staple feeder- vitamins w/ beta carotene 2 x per week lightly coated ONCE per feeding -- once they turn a year old that is going to change

Thought I would share this pic 🤣 and tail seem to healed up nicely, no more blacking. I noticed it’s already shedding, the people at the petsmart didn’t know the age nor the gender unfortunately smh. Anybody able to give an idea of the age based off the size?
Thank you
