Hi we recently got a Rankins Dragon (a little under 2 weeks ago) he's 4/5 months old frustratingly I think we've annoyed him quite a bit over the past few days. For the first 10 days he'd been eating on and off sometimes spending a full 24hours or longer in his hide and barely eating. We were told this was due to settling in but when he didn't leave the hide for over 2 days we removed it after looking at a lot of conflicting advice - no one seems to agree if beardies and the like need hides -.that was 2 days ago.
He's been active over those two days and while the hides were out we modified it by splitting the cave so it still offers shelter but should hopefully let more light in so he doesn't get sick from lack of UVB and we've put them back in. He's now digging in the larger half in the cool side we'll keep our eyes on him over the next few days. He did eat a few crickets earlier and basked for a while. I'm hoping he doesn't go back to hiding for days at a time, although with the adjustments to the viv I understand he'll probably need a bit of time again to adjust.
The viv is 4x 2 x 2 the UVB bulb is a 6% bulb with reflectors which is what came with the kit with the supplier saying it should be enough due to the height of the viv. The basking lamp is a 100w bulb attached to a dimmer thermostat that set just over 100F. Temps in the tank are 75F in the cool end 88 in the middle and about 100+ at the hot end. Substrate is play sand and humidity is sitting at 32%
