Nice looking Beardie, but as DolbyR has said sand shouldnt be used for Beardies that young. Usually when they reach around 9-12 months and are more accurate with their hunting then you can move them onto sand.. You wont need it that deep either.

How long is the tank youve got there? Ideally they should be around 4ft in lenght and 2 ft depth

The lizard, substrate, lights, hide rock, food and water dish were all free. She was originally in a 55 gallon but my room mate needed a tank for a Ball Python so I switched and put Peaches in the 35 gallon shown. I have read and heard that beardies shouldn't be housed on sand until they reach so long But the sand is all I have for her right now. I do have some aspen bedding (What we house our snakes on) but I would be more leery of housing her on this than the sand. She eats everything but crickets out of her dish and what little sand is ingested has yet to cause issue to be seen. It's repti-cal calcium sand and the young man I got her from said she had been living on it for just over four months without incident. Should her habits and behavior change a visit to the vet will be arranged and the substrate switched but at the moment, I don't have the money or the resource to swap everything. While we're on the note of bearded dragon size, about how fast to they usually grow? How soon should I expect her to reach adult size? Thanks all! I appreciate the insight and the comments!

I use kitchen- and newspaper. I know of people that have raised BD's with no issues on sand, but I do not recommend it. In the end it all comes down to personal preference (I prefer to play on the safe side).


If you feed it enough, it'll grow FAST. How big is it now, lengthwise?

My baby one has grown probably an inch or two in 2 months. I also got a 1 year old male in june, he was then 12", now he's 18"+

She's just shy of eight inches long right now and she eats like food is her religion. LOL So I don't think it'll take long for her to get very big.
