    Hi! I got a new bearded dragon yesterday, and am wondering if everything looks right with the enclosure. We have mint and basil growing in the enclosure, a basking spot, a hide, some mesh that he can climb on, a water bowl, a food bowl, a basking/uva/uvb bolb and nice substrate.
    It is 40 gal.

    How? I'm a noob. Btw he's been doing well and is eating about 30 mealworms a day. Is that normal?

    You may want to consider finding some different staple feeders, and offer mealworms for variety rather than as the only bugs. They can be tough on the young ones' digestion. For pics, try the "upload a file" button and see if that works for you. :0)

    Since pic isnt working answer these questions
    UVB brand and bulb? Is it a coil or tube ? Where in tank is UVB inside or on top of screen mesh? What is your basking temps and how are you taking them? stick ons? digital probe? or infrared heat gun?
    Temps for a baby should be 105-110 --- they and the UVB is the key to the health of your dragon if they are not the proper or correct lighting your dragon WILL get sick and possibly die---------------- do not listen to the pet store people they do not have a clue as to what they are talking about------------- if you need more help please ask

    They need what ever the watt will keep basking temps at 105-110 it is trial and error-- NO colored bulb a bring white basking bulb - colored bulbs will hurt their eyes and cause long term eye damage--- you need a Infrared heat gun or digital probe to get accurate temps I recommend both one for cool side of tank -- of which it needs to be around 80 during day and not below 65 at nite-- NO stick ons or Stick !!!!!!!!!!!!! Please answer the questions I asked in order to figure out issue
