    Spikey!

    We have had our little dragon for 2 weeks now and I am so in love with the little guy (he has the 2 bumps near his vent so think it's a boy... lol)
    He was 6 inches and 8 weeks old when we got him, he is now 7 inches! I think a color morph managed to sneak his way into the normal Bearded Dragons tank, because his is getting redder as he sheds He is a food machine, I have not found anything he doesnt want to eat, loves his greens, crickets and meal worms.

    Got some tile for his tank today looks pretty good in there Do any of you caulk it into the tank? I think that when I get his permante home I will then wipe it clean so the crickets don't sneak inbetween.
    Here is his home, its a reg 30 gal tank

    Here are some pics of him

    Smile!

    i never caulked it in because I always take the tiles out to clean them. It just seemed easier to me that way, but I suppose you could. Would certainly solve the cricket issue if you're having it. But mine never let the circkets live long enough to hide XD

    And the colors will change alot in the babies as they grow. If you looked at pics or Jarrah as a baby and an adult, you'd never even know he was the same dragon.

    CUTE little guy.

    My hubby caulked a 55gal when Boga was in there, and I'm sorry that he did that. Boga is in a different tank now and we have a leo in the caulked tank and it's a PAIN to clean.

    So I'd say don't caulk the tiles. *lol*

    Our other tanks have tile and it's nice to be able to pick up each piece for a weekly trip to the dishwasher for a GOOD hot clean. Or the daily wipe down.

    Very cute little guy....(and I would opt NOT to caulk as well...makes it easier to take out/replace the tiles as needed.)

    I would have to agree will all the others, no need to caulk the tiles!
    By the way Spikey is too cute
    They are little eating and pooping machines, LOL, glad you are enjoying him.
