Hi!

I currently have a 75 gal tank with a T5 10.0 UVB bulb. My beardie is around 13 months old. My husband was mentioning he read of a UVB bulb and heat bulb all in one? Do those really exist? Are they any good or am I better sticking with my long uvb bulb and heat bulb separately. Thanks!

Yes they exist and they are called MVB--- good ones are PowerSun and Mega Ray --- they are over priced and hard to work w/ on keeping the heat and UVB in balance-- I recommend you stay w/ your regular basking bulb and your T 5- it is always recommended if using one to have a T 5 or T 8 as a back up for the UVB --- they also need to be changed out every 6 months if not using a extra UVB- versus your T 5 every year I recommend every 10-11 months

I agree with Karrieree, the mvb's are a compromise between good uvb/to much heat or a little cooler basking but not enough uvb.
I personally setup basking and uvb separately with some overlap of the two so my guys can chose what makes them happy (and they will, they know better than us what they need)

All-in-One bulbs.
MVBs are very popular
Brings out they're colors a little differently...
MVBs are more-so for advanced reptile keepers.

Hello , im still figureing out this platform,
So violet laid eggs, weeks ago, she was doing very well , in the last 3 to 4 days her poop was more than runny . Haven't changed much in her diet , an appetite is very good. Should I be considering a parasites remedy as she does get bloated as soon as she starts to eat.
My baby beardie likes to sit in their water bowl. I'm curious on whether it would hurt them or not.
Any thoughts an knowledge will be helpful. Thank u
Im needing some questions answered about my female beardeddragon, I honestly have no idea on age , she was a recuse, as ive had a couple in my life an have experience. So 9 weeks in , she earing well pooping well getting comfortable, then approx 3-4 days ago the digging started. So I got a dig box set up in her 75 g tank. Well within 2 hours she dropped an egg. Now only one egg an its been 10 hours.shouldiBworried
I just set Swordtail's timer for his bath and paused it so I could actually fill his soaking bowl up and he crawled over my phone and canceled the timer 🤣
