The viv is ok but there is things you will not need, heat rock is a no no, can burn beardies, heats mats are no use for beardies, you will also need a uv tube 3/4 the length of the viv and a controller to power it.

If I was you I would stick with Tom, very enthusiastic keeper and viv builder, he knows his stuff.

Here a link on the basic setup, these guy are over in Northampton and can build you custom vivs.

Please do not spend £300 on a bearded dragon kit. You will well overspend for usually inferior products.

Check here, here and here for more info. Or buy my viv! I've added more pics to the link in my sig by the way.

I don't think I'd have the heart to sell that after all the work! I'd have to keep it and would simply be forced to purchase more reptiles to put in it!

Looks good cat, glad you got sorted. I have 2 females together with no problems but I would never keep a male and a female together, it would cause far to many problems. If you get your beardies from a decent breader they will be able to sex them so you know what you will be getting. Thats a relly good place you went to starting out, Lois is very passionate about what she does.

As mx jay has suggested if you want to cohabit then f/f pairing is the only answer really in a 4x2x2, however, still no guarantee. Add a male to the occasion and your chances will decrease dramatically.
