Arrow Beardie Waxworm

Hi Guys,

i fed Jessie (My baby beardie) a mealworm today.
Interestingly enough, he poo'd and it looked like he'd just passed the waxworm straight through- Is this normal???

Really worried now...

Your help and advice would be very much appreciated on this

Hiya,

Thanks for the advice, just to clarify, did u mean put the UV 10% up?
If so, does this mean buying a new bulb, or using the adjuster to increase?
Sorry for being so specific- just want to make sure my little guy gets all he needs

Thanks

not a problem no uv should be bout 6 inch without burning him pics would be easier

uv bulb should be 10% like reptisun 10% or arcadia 12% (Examples there are loads of uv bulbs available)
