I first started seeing results when my temps where 80f DTH 72f NTL and 90f basking.
Then I got better results when I offered 80f DTH 75f NTL and 130f baskings.
Then I changed to 80f DTH 80f NTL and 130f baskings, my lizards started failing.
It was back to 80f DTH 75f NTL and 130f baskings, it took a full year before I changed again. During this time I focused on foods and there effects on my captives, remember all these where conducted on more then 40 cages of various size, in these all combinations from a single individual to mixed groups of male and females.
Total number of lizard well over 100 of 7 species.

I got significant improvement these last few months after raising my DTH to 85-90f, this zone seems to make a real change with all species, its noticeable in the first few days.
Metabolism is accelerated and therefore all other physiological aspects are as well.

Incidentally these are the temps suggested by Philippe de Vosjoli in his excellent book on greed water dragons. I should have read this book in the first place and save a lot of work.

With these correction I feel safe about these species being in the hands of most average keepers, donít see them as fragile anymore.
