Not open for further replies.
Hey, I just got "tuffy" a couple of days ago.... He was eating fine when I got him but now he wont eat any crickets, maggets waxworms.... Nothing? I am using a 15w repti glo 8.0 and a separate light for basking and a rock underneath the basking light. He has a hamick underneath the UVB light.... What am I doing wrong?

First off, is your reptiglo 8 a coil or a long tube? Also, what are your temps and what do you take them with? The answers to these questions will help us to see what, if anything, is wrong. The coil/compact uvb bulbs have been shown to cause a lack of appetite because of eye problems, the correct term I can't spell.

My female bearded dragon has recently started gasping for air all the time. She can’t get sleep or really do anything because she has such a difficult time breathing. I think it might be a RI but I’m not completely sure. Any thoughts?
