Hey, I have a quick questions for you all. I have a Desert Iguana and was reading on how I need to give it a vitamin-mineral supplement. Any one have any suggestions on a good brand or even where to buy the stuff? Would greatly Appreciate it!
Thanks

Yeah, I don't really expect to hold him much as I've read they're very flighty. I think he is already starting to understand that I'm the hand the feeds him and takes care of him, I can grab him without much of a fuss and he won't really start to struggle until I put him in the container I keep him in while I clean the tank, I can open the tank with him near the top and he won't try to escape, I dunno, he's not as much of a pita as I've read they can be. He hasn't tried to bite me either, even though I tend to grab him by the mid section at first. I was worried for a bit because he wasn't eating after I re did the substrate, and he had even eaten small pieces of the substrate, but he's just finished the first shed since I've owned him in about a days time, and I had to spot clean like a mother****er because he **** everywhere lol, each one was the size of a large cricket basically. He is eating 6-8 large crix a day again and is much more active throughout his entire cage, not just the heat lamp side.

I'm buying all the stuff to make some bark backgrounds for him on tuesday, shouldn't take more than a few days to make sure all the fumes and whatnot are clear. He has stopped running into the glass as much though, he only does it now when I startle him with a loud noise or one of the cats decides to be a dick and go near the tank.

That's the other thing I need for him now, is a stand for the tank, to get him off of the cats eye level. Then maybe I can finally have them in the same room again without stressing the **** out about them trying to jump on top or constantly staring at him and stressing him. If I'm in the room to keep on the cats case about it, it's not a problem, but if I leave for more than 5 minutes, mother****er sits right in front of the cage staring at him, meowing and flicking his tail. I'm not great at reading reptile body language yet, but I know cats, and that's predatory behavior that he could pretty clearly pick up on, because he ran into the plant hide I made for him and didn't leave for a while.

Even after changing up the tank more, still getting mold. The woody vine I've had is not molding, and I've read that pine wood holds up much better to constant moisture and humidity.

Pine wood.............................................. .....

No pine in a tank

And just ditch the Cyprus if you're having issues with mold. Or learn to sanitize it, I say ditch the Cyprus and just just coir. It'll be messier but no mold.

As for branches I can send you a link with how to make fake ones from foam and rope.

I now have a chameleon along with my water dragon. Roommate moved out and gave him to me. Fascinating creatures. Pictures coming tonight after I get off work.

I almost bought a chameleon instead of a green basilisk, been contemplating getting a smaller terrarium for one but I'd rather just keep **** kosher in Apollos tank.

Removing the cypress mulch all together this weekend. Gonna put a barrier of flat rocks in the middle and have all my clay ball substrate in one half and the other half will be water. I put a big tupperware with some feeder fish in his tank last week and he loved the **** out of it, so I figure why not make his tank half water and also have a constant secondary supply of food if I'm ever out and can't feed him crix.

Getting him to eat the fish instead of just chasing them around playing with them in the water was a pita though lol, had to kill one, leave it out overnight for him to eat, then not feed him for a day. Now he loves fish too.

That is exactly what I've been wanting to do, I'm thinking a little under half the tank with a filter will be a small pond type of deal with fish that he can munch down. Probably gonna fix it up in the next few days.

Yeah I found a good filter I'll be picking up saturday when I grab some coconut husk, just to keep him/the crix from getting into the clay balls. Since I was having so many issues with mold, I just went out and got him a plastic look alike till I can find some suitable branches besides the segments of jungle vine I already have, those seem to be withstanding the constant humidity well. I've also been looking into just total fabrication from the ground up, like mink said.

Commander Cool the water dragon isn't eating his crickets today. He normally chomps them down, but today he ate one and hasn't even looked at the others. First time I've ever noticed this, any reason for concern or should I wait it out?

Apollos crests are starting to show, he has a second point on his head thats starting to raise up too, not just the obvious point in the back. Should look badass when he's fully grown, so excited haha.

I do need to try and handle him more often though.

Looking back on the first picture I posted up of him and this current one, it's awesome to see how much he's grown.

thinking about getting two crested geckos, found a breeder selling them for $30 each. think i may try breeding them sometime down the road if they arent a pain in the *** (which i doubt they will be).

anyone know of any tips for making a bioactive tank? i think id only get them if i didnt have to clean after them much lol.

More check ins. He likes to tear his cage apart when I feed him, dude is all over the place.


Finally got the proper filter to make his tank half water and half dry, gonna do a big clean up and get it situated proper this weekend. Its one of the most amusing things to watch him learn how to catch the fish I put in his tank.

Be careful with fish, common goldfish are crummy feeders.

He didn't like the feeder goldfish I got him the first time, and after reading up a bit I saw that other peoples basilisks liked flashier fish like guppies and whatnot, so I get him 5-6 about twice a month to keep a little variety in his diet.

Set all my knob tails up in a cooling shed today


Rack worth of Aymea


The shed, 4 racks on the left side and boxes stacked on the right.

Non proportional thermostat attached to 3 fans and an oil filled radiator to keep the temperature between 60-62.
Have a vent fan attached to a helix if it goes over 64 some how.
