Lighting for bearded dragon

Postby xanax101202 » Sun Jan 24, 2021 9:47 am

I currently have a Zilla Desert UVB 50 Bulb inside of her enclosure. I am searching for the Reptisun 10.0, but all stores near me seem to be cleaned out of them. I also have a Thrive 15 WATT 18” UVB bulb and i was wondering which one would be better to put in until I get the Reptisun? Also I’m having a problem with low humidity and was looking for any tips on how to raise it. It sits a 25 for the most part. I spray her a few times a day just to make sure she’s not getting dried out.

Your humidity is fine at 25% you dont want it below that and not above 70% --- the Zilla bulb is ok I would switch it out to the Reptisun 10.0 T 8 go on line and order it -- ... -10-0.html
Get rid of the Thrive 15 watt all together you dont want ANY COILS at all --
The T 8 needs to be inside the tank w/ NO clear plastic cover over the bulb -- it needs to be 6-8 inches directly above the basking decor piece
