Your fine w/ the T 8 but I would invest in the fixture I posted for you and that bulb however you need to get your T 8 inside the tank --- the screen is blocking 30% of those rays and w/ the cover that you had on was even more so get the T 8 inside you can hang w/ these
3 M command Velcro fasteners- picture hanging wire –long plastic zip ties-- fishing line -- shoe laces-- potted plant hangers ---
The basking decor needs to be approx 6-8 inches directly underneath ---
Your going to need to replace the bulb in 3 months anyway so I would plan on getting the new fixture and bulb in 3 months --- and if you decide in the future to upgrade the 40 gallon that 24" fixture will go right into the new tank

Hey so the spot on his head is still there and there's another spot just like it near his ear. The tip of his head to the end of his eyes look like they are beginning to shed but not in it's normal pattern. Also right above his eye is shedding a weird crusty yellow skin. When I pet his head he moves away, he's fine when I pet his body and tail though. Although he is still energetic and eats normal. Do you think I should get in contact with a vet?

I took Griff over to my neighbor who used to run a reptile store. She told me it was just some stuck shed and proceeded to wet it and take it off. She didn’t get it all off though because Griff started getting upset and he bled a little. In complete honesty it kinda looks like she just took off his scales. She told me to put Vaseline on the stuck shed and try to get the rest off but I can’t tell if his head looks better or worse and I don’t want tear the shed off without being certain.

Please no more help from the neighbor!!! She's probably damaged his scales and w/ him squirming she was hurting him--- let his shed come off naturally-- if and when it gets crackly / drie take a soft baby toothbrush and gently brush-- No Vaseline! I want ahbd to advise on what to put on it

Put some raw unpasteurized honey on it, best thing you can use and it's 100 % safe in the eye.
