acidophiliz is a probiotic for reptiles, most often recommended to dragons who are on or just finished a round of antibiotics/dewormer.

From the look of the dragons who are not eating well..they seem very thin...I would bring them to a vet and if possible, bring in a fresh stool sample from each.

After reading the description of your setups...20" for a UVB 10.0 bulb seems off to me. I use the Repti-sun (or Repti-glo, always get the brand names mixed up..whichever one is made by Exo Terra) 10.00 tubes at about 12" above the basking area without any issues. IF you are using MVB bulbs, 20" is about right, as they do push out alot more UVB than a tube.

Are you sure on the basking temps? Also, never really considered the temp guns to be all that great at getting air temps..they are better suited for surface temps.

For the ill looking/non eating dragons, try putting a solid barrier between it and the adjacent cages (ie sheet of cardboard between the two rubbermaid tubs). ALso, stop bathing them...its just putting them under needless stress. Instead offer water via a dropper or mist them lightly (use luke warm water, not cold, and change water every time you mist..so it doesn't get stagnant or start tasting lke plastic)
