Reptiles, Amphibians and Inverts A lot of aquarists also dabble in keeping reptiles, amphibians and invertebrates. Why not have a place to chat about them? :D

I recently saved this sweet thing. Never in my life have I owned a dragon. So it is all so very new to me. Anyone make a custom home for theirs?

My bearded dragon lives in his very own 90 gallon aquarium. The tank is a little tall, so he needs the 150w "tight beam" heat lamp. I tried to use the rock shaped shelves that use magnets to hold them on the glass... Glass was far too think, so I stuck them on with aquarium silicone.

No custom house for my dragon, just a big tank with a large flowerpot for him to get closer to the light. And a rock for him to scratch dead skin on.

They are cool creatures. Mine gets VERY lazy in the winter months. So don't be worried if he doesn't move for a couple days... Although... Food will always male them run over!

Watching him eat and feeding him has been very cool. He also loves having baths. Which I think is great.
I really want to make him a wooden enclosure with the front being glass. I think it might hold heat better. What UVB lights do you use? How many do you use for that space?

Dragons are excellent little guys....good save there!
Kijiji seems to have constant ads for free dragons as of late...

I currently have 2 big guys.....

As previously mentioned they don't need much daylight/heat lamp/UVA/UVB

Plate of fresh veges daily and bunch of hornworms usually weekly.

I don't keep water in with them....but give them a 15 minute soak weekly sometimes 2x a week.....even if you don't see them drink they will absorb water in through their vent.....and the soak helps them out with their shed
