Inland Bearded Dragon – hygiene

Indoor enclosures including tanks and aquariums must be spot cleaned daily to remove faeces and any uneaten food. Water dishes and food dishes must be cleaned daily. Full tank cleans including complete substrate changes should be carried out every term (10 weeks) or 1 – 3 months as required. A full enclosure clean should include a complete substrate change, cleaning furniture if required, cleaning and disinfecting glass and the walls of the enclosure.

Outdoor enclosures must be spot cleaned regularly to remove faeces and uneaten food. While larger enclosures may not appear to need cleaning as frequently, it is good practice to still clean enclosures regularly to reduce buildup of waste. Substrate changes should be carried out if required.
