                    [post_content] => The Critter Forum is a place where new and experienced pet owners can post pictures, habitat guides, questions, and tips about all things related to pets.  We all want the same thing: good health and happiness for our pets.  So let's keep this place friendly, constructive, and supportive by following some basic rules:
  1. We encourage you to post these pet related things: pictures, habitats, questions, and anything else pet related.
  2. The Critter Forum is for all ages.  Absolutely no adult content. Users will be banned and reported.
  3. Be kind.  Everyone here wants to learn, and become better care givers for their pets.  Help others by sharing tips, knowledge, products, and tutorial videos.
  4. Be respectful of other people’s opinions and ideas. It’s okay to disagree and have different opinions, but present your case tactfully.  Everyone here wants the same thing: good health and happiness for their pet.
  5. All posts must be relevant to the selected category.  For example, don’t discuss corn snakes on the bearded dragon category.
  6. All threads that are nothing but a ‘test’ or an ‘ad’ will be deleted.
  7. If you share irrelevant links, your comment or post will be deleted.  If the links are relevant to the thread, that’s fine. Please use your best judgment here.
  8. Please don’t use affiliate links in this forum. When you externally link, do it because you want to help someone, not because you see a quick opportunity to make some cash.
  9. Try to add value when you post. Don’t just type something along the lines of “What they said.”
  10. Use proper grammar to the best of your ability. We understand that English may not be everyone’s main language, but make an attempt. You won’t get in trouble for a misplaced comma or for typos, but it would help everyone if you could make sure everyone understands your message.

She is a tiny thing, estimated 3 months old. But I suspect only maybe about 8 weeks or less. Since I got her she hasn’t ate anything, I’m constantly monitoring the temperature in her habitat. And doing all the things a good pet owner can do. I have owned a beardie before but it was an adult. I’ve learned new things and having a baby is freaking me out, I don’t want her to die. Is it common for baby’s not to eat if they are moved? I can tell she trusts me, and she’s sleeping a lot and isn’t very active. I have installed a black light, so she can stay warm. She has both UVB and a basking light The tank is only 10 gallons, I am going to be purchasing a larger soon. Are lights supposed to be inside the tank? Or over? Also I noticed my bulbs are only putting out about 85-90 degrees witch I know isn’t optimal for her. Should I use the black light during the day with the others to increase the temp?
