Hey guys!

We're new here on this forum. Used to just read along but now we've decided to make an account since we have got some questions!

We got our baby dragon named Egg about 20 days ago, he/she is about two months old now.
In the beginning Eggy would not do much, just lie around, but now he is super curious, active and he eats well. So we thought everything was going pretty good!
But now we've seen some pictures of rankins dragon's stress marks on the forum and we're getting a little bit worried because our little guy seems to have really really dark stress marks. Sometimes they fade a little bit, but usually they are there day after day. I'll try to insert some pictures.

We know it can take some time for them to accustom to a new place, but just to be sure/not worry too much we decided to ask you guys!

This is what we do to take care of him: (most of it following the advice of the pet store guy)
He lives in a 40 x 40 x 40 cm glass viv (I think that would be 15.7 x 15.7 x 15.7 inch),
with an exo terra UVB100, 200-210v, 50Hz, 25W light,
and a zoo med 60W basking spot lamp.
We have the basking lamp on from 7AM-11PM, and the UVB from 11AM-11PM.
The colder end of the viv is about 30 degrees celsius (86F), and the basking spot about 35/37 degrees celsius (95/98.7F).
He eats every 3 days, as much as he wants to eat, usually this is about 5 crickets each time.
We bathe him weekly, and change his shallow dish of water daily.
We plan on cleaning the viv and everything in there each 2 weeks.

We would really appreciate your input! Eggy is a super cool, sweet dude, and we would hate it if we were doing something wrong / for him to feel bad.

Kind regards! :mrgreen:
