We finished null’s new house yesterday, and he’s been Doing a lot of exploring!! We’ve had him for about a month now and started out in a 29 gallon, so this is a big adjustment!! What’s your thoughts, anything I could do better?
His current basking side running between 90-100, so I need a new hotter bulb I think, and he has a 18” t8 uvb in the middle/right side and his cooler side has a emmit heater, so his temp is running 75-80!

It looks great -- but the UVB looks a little high for a T 8--- it should be around 6-8 inches from basking spot - I would put a piece of decor under it that is 6-8 inches from it ---

Thanks Karie! Just curious,his basking bulb is a dual fixture, heat/uvb, should I get the same thing just in a higher strength or just a regular bulb?
