It should be fine :) It is a bit close at the top, but since the spot pumpkin uses is at the right distance, it should be just fine.

I might be able to. I will wait if it is ok for right now. Pumpkin is shedding and the new light already has the poor little one on edge. She poofed pretty fiercely at me while doing it lol. She hasnt done that since i gor her last week so i assume the shed is making her cranky. I dont wanna change to much with her already being upset.

So today was a deep clean day (currently washing the reptile carpet.) And moves the decorations. Now I have a new confusing issue. The temp on the hide I moved over is reading 119, waaay to warm, with the probe. Its 8inch below the basking and uvb light. The tep on the hammock is 109. So. Do I reduce the light from 150 back to a 100? I font wannt cook the little one. Pumkin is on it because we just finiahed with a bath.Sorry I didnt think temps would give me so many problems :/ [Click image to enlarge]

Yes put the 100 back in and then get a temp -- it is trial and error w/ bulbs and decor ---
