Has the poop consistency changed? Are you feeding fruit? I see dubias anything else?
Not really, sometimes it's a little better but still not firm and mashy. I don't give any fruit now. Mostly only dubia. Also some black soldier larvae with the veggies and leaves. Yesterday gave a mealworms. This morning she has the same stool and earlier on the morning than usual. I was feeding her dubia as a staple from the day I got her. Do you think it's could be a reason? I don't really like crickets.
Yesterday she was hiding most of the afternoon. Maybe didn't get enough basking. But every time she eats , she going to bask right a way like for 30-60 minutes.

So shes getting enough basking but that 113 is pretty hot --- I would lower the temp if you can down to 95-100 -- I would keep feeding the roaches - they are a better feeder -- are you feeding squash?

I don't feed any veggies for the last 2 weeks. Only leaves. I can Lower the temps, but there is a big basking area on that hammock. I checked temp in different parts cause she can move and choose where to lay. Some parts around 98, 100. It's the hottest point under the lamp is 113.

The greens should not be giving her watery stools - has she been tested for parasites?
Yes, they fount not big amount of pinworms. I gave her medicine as instructed. It's been like a week ago and nothing changed. She never drink water from the bath. Doesn't have a water bowl in tank. The only hydration she gets it's from the dubias and leaves. I'll going attach this morning poop. Always a lot of water.

Thanks a lot. I'm going through all possible reasons and can't figure it out. I hate to change the hammock as basking spot cause I really like the way enclosure now. But may be I need a rock or wood that going also warmth the belly from the bottom.

I wouldn’t feed hornworms as they hold a lot of water. I would feed some veggies but more dry ones instead of juicy ones. I’d also take her to a different vet and see if they see anything as more opinions can be better.

I only feed couple of times like a month or so ago. What are the dry veg would you recommend? She doesn't seems really sick so, only thing I would probably do it's redo a fecal sample, may be they miss something there. Or there is some other test that could be done.

I personally feed squash but carrots and snap peas just stuff like that would work. You don’t have to do this it’s just for a little bit more variety and color. I’d say get just an overall examination on her and bring another fecal in that happened within 24 hours. Also show them the pics you sent us.

You can try some raw shredded sweet potato to see if it will firm it up some -

Hello everyone, I'd like to do update and attach the pics of last two days stool. It's getting better but still not ideal. I change basking spot that get more heat on surface and reduce overall temperature. Gave her some sweet potato as well. Trying to feed her less now. Twice a day instead of three.

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?
