Hey There,i was wondering how long i could keep my bearded dragon
out of the tank before he needs heat again.hes about 8 inches long.

I let mine run around for about an hour. But never right after they eat. I let them bask for at least two hours after eating before I take them out.

Yep, definately let them bask after they eat since they need the heat to digest their food. I let Buttercup run around for as long as she wants then when she is tired she will usually find a corner to poke her nose in. This usually means she is cold so I pop her back under her basking light. Also,at night when it's night, night time I keep her out for longer since she wouldn't be getting heat or UVB in her viv anyway. That is our cuddle time. :love5:
