When the viv get to the correct temp the thermastat turns off the light??
So for about an hour or two she only has the UVB light she seems ok and looks right at the UVB tube so I think she's fine but would like to know what you guys think :)

I personally never use a retrostat with dragons, I prefer the heat light to be on all day. If the reto is set up proper then yes, it will shut the light down at a certain temp then click back on when the temp lowers some.
There is some concern that a dragon looking directly at a UVB can be bad for their eyes and having another bulb on will reduce the chance of damage. Is there any reason you are using a retostat instead of letting the bulb burn all day?

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?
