    I read a lot of good reviews about the ProT5 kit. I'll check how to make one myself and will ask the Facebook-lady you mentioned!

Don't get me started on the lighting debate, the temperature debate, and especially not the 'mealworm diet' debate. They have some amazing variations of bearded dragons over there, unfortunately many are too stubborn to see that their care isn't that great.

    Sounds like everyone above has nailed it on the head, keep your temps right and your cleanliness up, and there's no cause for worry.
    Keeping it as hygienic while in recovery is best, tiles, paper towel changed out daily, think surgical, the cleaner the better.

    I use play sand in mine, and I have 1/4 of the enclosure on fake desert sand mat which is where I keep his food, this isn't necessary, but stops him kicking sand into his food

    Yeah... I'm sure they are trying there best, but a lot of people are really stubborn and hateful when you ask the wrong things.
