also read on another site never to bath at all as damages their lungs
All those different powders is a bit overkill. As we're talking about a beardy, they should get most of their D3 from the UVB (providing it's all correct) instead of supplements. So I would use Nutrobal a couple of times a week with beardies.

I think there's laws about the whole D3 thing, so they are only labelled as vitamin D. Nutrobal definitely contains D3.

Most beardies don't appear to use their water bowl as they get most of their water from food. Unless he looks wrinkled and has sunken eyes I wouldn't bathe too often (but that's just me). Bathing shouldn't damage their lungs unless it's so hot it's steaming.
