Basking bulb wattage???

Postby BriNoelle » Wed Jun 19, 2019 2:06 pm


I was just wondering what wattage would you recommend to use for your basking lamp?
I have a 53 Gal. tank & the beardie is 2 yrs. old.

Thank you! :D

You need a bright white basking bulb and it is trial and error for what wattage- you need to take the temp w/ a infrared heat gun to get the best accurate temp-
