Default Bearded Dragon kinda stopped eating

Hey guys, I got my Beardie last Saturday. She is around 4 months old I think (8-10"). Up till Tuesday she was eating lots of her salad both hand fed and from her dish, she would also hunt down crickets straight off. I had a reptiglo 10.0 installed for her and on Tuesday I had changed to an Arcadia 12% as I'd heard the reptiglo wasn't so great. However ever since she has stopped eating, this'd be the third day now she's ignoring any type of food (crickets or salad).

She's also changed colour - Monday = http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v2...0/SDC11838.jpg

Wednesday = http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v2...0/SDC11841.jpg

It sounds like it pretty much is the UVB to me but I'd like some other opinions just in case as I've not heard great things about reptiglo 10.0

As ninjaa said, will be coming into shed, however sometimes beardies love nothing more than a good sulk have you changed anything round in the viv, or may just be settling in if you only got her on saturday, the take around a week to settle in their new homes

Oh I see, I did help her get some shedding off this morning. I guess they shed bit by bit then? not leopard gecko style of all off in one go or something?

Yeah she's been taking a crap daily so far. She's on paper right now.

I did put some crickets in earlier, she seemed interested for a bit but didn't catch any (it was around 15 minutes before she goes to sleep so I expect she's tired) and I won't leave crickets in there overnight, usually I've dropped them in one by one for her to catch.

When you put the crickets it, cool them in the fridge, this will slow them down and enable her to catch them easier

S/he seems alright now! it does seem like shedding. Do they change colour when they shed? because over the weekend he changed again to a darker colour and now is gradually going yellow again.

I've had him a week now, I think I'll start giving him warm baths. How frequent should I do this?
