Repti-Sun 10.0 T5 HO or T8 Repti-Sun 10.0

[TOPIC AUTO-LOCKED DUE TO INACTIVITY]

I am going to be buying a repti-sun 10.0 tube light to replace the coil UVB that my dragon came with as I know that they are bad for them but i cannot decide if I should get the T5 bulb or the T8 bulb. My dragon is currently 10 months old and in a 55 gallon tank. I want to get a 24" bulb which I will mount inside the tank. Any help on where I should mount the bulb and how would be helpful as well.

Thanks

Ohh I also wanted to ask I have an Exo Terra 150W Intense basking spot light in my tank and a infrared basking light on the other side which will be replaced with a che as soon as it arrives in the mail, are those sufficient enough for lighting with the repti-sun 10.0 or will I need a white light of some sort on the othe rend of the tank from the basking light?

Hello :). I would get the t8. Also a 55 gallon tank is too narrow for a beardie. I would get a 40 gallon breeder or a 75 gallon.

Thanks, I have been looking for a different tank but the tank he came with was a 20 gallon which was too small so we put him in what we had, once i find or build something bigger he will be moved into it.
