Hi everyone, im new to this forum, ive found this to be the best place for advice, info and sharing stories etc about dragons. I would like to introduce mine to you all, and show my setup too.
My viv, 6ft high, 4 ft wide, pretty tough glass (due to what was being housed before hand), both have slate bottoms and have baths only holds about 1.5 inches of water. Both have heat lamps and UV tubes, got the heat at 80-85 cold end and 105 in the hot end.

This lady I had from someone who wasn't really looking after her properly, I have now got her to a more healthy state, improved diet and lighting, she seems a load happier, haven't decided on a name yet but she fits right in with the family!

This guy/girl is called ember, she is around 5/6 months old, lovely and playfull, loves food haha, having a shed at the moment, he/she is just over 30cm from head to tail so growing nicely.

Hi and welcome.
With those baths - you'll need to keep an eye on humidity levels (around 40~50%) if they're full of water. Much better to turn them into a sand bath and just leave a small bowl in for water. Otherwise looking good.

Thanks Rick, I kinda avoided the sand because I wanted to avoid risking he/she to any harm at a young age, also thought that giving the option of water would be a nice offer. Ember does like to play in it every now and then. I will actually look into replacing it with the necessary sand, ember has a habit of climbing the log and pooing from the top and hitting the water (toilet trained haha).

I move our babies on to sand once they're feeding and hunting accurately - probably 4~6 months old. So I wouldn't have any problems with you using sand for Ember now.
