QnA on Bearded Dragon Tank Setup

Bearded dragons make popular pets and are known for their friendly personality and easy care. When choosing a tank for your bearded dragon, it is important to select the right size and type of tank. A 20-gallon tank is a good size for a single bearded dragon, but you may need a larger tank if you plan to keep more than one. The best type of tank for bearded dragons is an aquarium with a screen lid that can be securely fastened.

    What should be in a bearded dragon tank? 

    When it comes to bearded dragon tanks, bigger is better. The tank should be at least 20 gallons, and up to 30 gallons for two or more dragons. 

    Bearded dragons need a place to hide and feel secure, so provide plenty of rocks and branches. Make sure any branches are not sharp and that there is nothing the dragon can get caught on.

    A bearded dragon needs a warm area and a cool area in its tank. The temperature in the tank should be around 80-85 degrees Fahrenheit for the warm area, and around 65-70 degrees Fahrenheit for the cool area.

    The tank should also have a UVA/B light, which can be found at most pet stores. Bearded dragons need at least 12 hours of light per day. 

    What is the best thing to put in the bottom of a bearded dragon tank? 

    There are a few things that can be put in the bottom of a bearded dragon tank. One of the best things to put in the tank is sand. Bearded dragons like to burrow and bury themselves in the sand. Another good thing to put in the tank is a water dish. Bearded dragons need water to drink and to soak in. 

    Do I need to mist my bearded dragon tank? 

    Misting your bearded dragon's tank is not necessary, but it can be helpful. The water will help to keep the humidity levels high, which can be beneficial for your bearded dragon. If you choose to mist your tank, be sure to do it regularly and avoid getting the water in your bearded dragon's eyes or mouth. 

    How often should I bathe my beardie? 

    Many people are unsure how often to bathe their bearded dragon. The general consensus is once a week, but it is best to bathe your dragon based on its activities. If your dragon is very active, it may need to be bathed more often than once a week. If your dragon is not very active, it may only need to be bathed once every two weeks. 

    Can you turn a bearded dragon heat lamp off at night? 

    Bearded dragons and other reptiles can be kept in captivity with proper equipment. One of the most important pieces of equipment is a heat lamp. In the wild, bearded dragons get much of their heat from the sun. When keeping a bearded dragon in captivity, it is important to provide a heat lamp to replicate this natural environment. The type and wattage of the heat lamp will depend on the size of your bearded dragon's tank.

    Heat lamps should be turned off at night to allow your bearded dragon to cool down. A temperature gradient should be provided in the tank, with one end being warmer than the other. This will allow your bearded dragon to choose an area that is comfortable for them. 


    In conclusion, when setting up a bearded dragon tank, it is important to provide the proper environment for your pet. This includes a habitat that is large enough, with the right temperature and humidity levels, and plenty of places for your dragon to hide and climb. By following these tips, you can create a comfortable home for your bearded dragon that will keep him healthy and happy.
