    They grow very little after the first year but he may grow some but don't expect a lot. It really makes no difference in size either. I have a rescue here that is now well over a year and she must have been from small parents as she has had everything since I got her at about 6 months of age. Look at it this way, now he has a plenty of room to roam and explore which is good. Also remember that he should now be on about 80% salad and veggies and 20% protein. Do the protein every other day for a while but the salads everyday. If you need more to choose from here is my list.

    Separate your dragons and your problem will be solved. They are not meant to live together unless they are mating, which is way too early for a 4 month old dragon, they dont reach sexual maturity till around 1 year.

    A bearded dragon stops growing after their 1st year. That year is crucial to their growth.

    So, no, your beardie wil not get bigger. But we all make mistakes! As long as he has heat, has room, and lots of food; he'll be fine.
