Ok here are the pics
His beard is fine -- looks like coloring -- if he had a black beard it would be really black and it would stand out --- you must have correct lighting for him meaning NO colored bulbs NO coil UVB's and correct basking temps taken w / a digital probe thermometer -- if you need help w/ any of this please ask and we can help

NO they are terrible -- you need to get a long tube fixture -- for a 40+ gallon tank I recommend a 24" fixture w/ a reflector and depending on the height of that tank depends on the bulb -- for a 16" height tank you would need a Reptisun 10.0 T 8 for a 18" height tank a Reptisun 10.0 T 5 -- these bulbs have distance and placmement requirements -- I would suggest you get this changed out ASAP --- Zoo Meds make good fixtures -- they will come w/ a 5.0 bulb that is equivalent to a T 8 -- you want the 10.0 bulb
