Please do- what are you using for a uvb- coil or long tube fixture - surface basking temps-- how are you taking them-- what are you using for a substrate? Pic did not post

Please get some raw filtered honey on the scab --- no crickets in the tank if your feeding them--- they will go straight for the wound--- next please get rid of the coil UVB-- they are a health hazard--- you want a long tube fixture I will post links please get this as soon as possible --these are good for 40 + gallon tanks

Please post back on here when you have the UVB I will help you place it for your screen on the tank - it will determine where the UVB is placed and distanced

Does the setup look ok btw I am trying to save up for some climbing stuff
Please get the uvb first this is absolutely crucial at this time- another crucial item is digital probe thermometers 2 of them the decor is fine for now-- temps and uvb are the top priority now

How do I apply the honey and also I got a better thermometer but no uv yet
Apply w/ a q tip -- you can use it straight or mix w/ a little warm water -- what are your surface basking temps running? The UVB is crucial please get it as soon as you can - this will also help w/ the scab as well --- UVB rays are crucial to him --- over all health and skin

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?
