RE: bearded dragon help
I'm sorry I'm a bit late answering this Jess. I haven't been on in awhile. How old are they? And how big? What is your enclosure like? (Temps, type of basking area/specific temp, UVB, cage type, etc...)

Young beardies (under a few months old) dehydrate very easily, and won't always take to drinking from a dish. They should be soaked/bathed at lest twice a week. Personally, I go with every other day. The amount, and type, of UVB plays a big role here as well. But my first guess is,if your housing them together, that one is more dominant, and the other one is eating less because of it. This is very common with beardies. It can range from one just not eating, to one actually attacking the other to the point of injury.

RE: bearded dragon help
Fishbone is correct, it could be a problem with dehydration. A simple tip is to spray water onto their veggies for a little hydration boost. And sometimes when i spray water directly onto their faces, they lick off the water due to animal instincts. Sounds ridiculous but it works.

Heating and lighting is another common problem for poor beardie health. Follow this http://beardeddragonlovers.com/bearded-d...bitat.html to make sure your dragon is getting the right temperature and lighting.
