They look cool but was there a reason you set them so low to the floor?

The space in the closet and the size of the viv. They about 14inches off the floor so not ideal but should be ok. I have a love seat across the room so you can still get a good view. Also above is a shelve with my sport collectable. This is kinda my sports room/Video game room and now you can add reptile room. Lol

Do you have the T 5 bulb 10.0? It should be 10-11 inches from him / her-- they are strong bulbs

How close ? You dont want it 8" or any closer -- the bulb is too strong-- you can always make it lower or even higher w/ the platforms / logs etc whatever it is your using
