    my Mrs decided she wanted a pet because i have my fish. we went for a trip to The Reptile Room and came back with a 4ft vivarium and a baby bearded dragon (called BeeBee).

    This is Him,

    Very nice.

    Must be depressing for you though - seeing another glass box in the room with no water, fish & plants in it. :lol:

    Look on the bright side - there is some water within the tank "a water bowl" not quite big enough for any fish or plants, I could have understood your logic if you had come home with some turtles - not a much water as an fish tank - but more water than a drinking bowl.

    Very nice, I could see myself coming home with a new hobby if I ever visited the Reptile Room :lol:

    I would probably get a dart frog then at least I could have some emersed growth anubias, cryps and echs in the tank ;)

    His tank looks a little bare. Apparently they're in to aquariums, perhaps a nano? Seems a shame to waste the light...

    Nice beardie :D
    Only thing i could suggest is if there isnt already one, make a space along the front ..... they like to run if they have the space :D
