Heat mat and heat rock
Sorry becasue they'd been together for 9 months I have kept them together
The Dragons should not be housed together. Two Dragons will fight. If two males they will evetually fight to the death once they hit matiurity or two females together there is the chance of toe nips, tail nips ect. A male will continuously breed with a female, so it is best to house them separately. Most likely Frank and Bruno are either two females or a male and female.
You do have a few serious issues that should be resolved the first is the heat rock needs to be removed ASAP This is a link to show you the dangers: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qTCC9mFYeBE
The next serious issue is that the Supposed safe sand substrate. It is sold as a safe bedding, but it can cause eye problems, skin problems and the worst issue is intestinal blockages: http://www.beardeddragon.org/articles/impaction/?page=3
I suggest a solid substrate of paper, ceramic tile, or cage carpet. These are much safer for a Dragon.
I would like to see if we can hydrate them and see if they will perk up. Please take some Dioralyte and warm water and give them a nice soak for 20-30 mins. This should help with hydration. I also suggest that they be seen by a Herp Vet for parasites. This is very common in Reptiles and any stress can cause them to bloom in the intestinal tract which can cause some lethargy. I am going to give you a link for Herp Vets in the UK: http://www.ukbeardeddragons.co.uk/vet%20directory.htm or http://www.livefoods.co.uk/Vets.php
I would try the few changes I suggested and see if there is some change in activity level. Please let me know if you have further questions. I will be happy to continue with you. My goal is to give you 100% Excellent Service. Joan
Made some of the changes just waiting delivery of a ceramic heater and guard to have more control over temperature.
Bathed them has suggested but Bruno didn't like it much - he's very grumpy and he has livened up a bit.
Both eating well but mostly hoppers and crickets won't touch their greens. Taking them for a check up over the weekend.
Will let you kow.
Glad they seem to be doing a bit better. They do get used to the soaks and actually grow to like them.Please let me know what the Vet says. there may be a paraiste issue which is very common in Reptiles.
