Go to petsmarts website- click on reptiles- click on heating and lighting I think it's yellow - it will say digital probe- sorry I am on my phone and not desk top- you need to get a UVB- a tube fixture w/ a reflector-- www.pangeareptiles.com has a 24" fixture for $32--- it will hold a reptisun 10.0 T 5 or a T 8 bulb--- how big is your tank? 20 gallon? I would get the T 8 for now-- but you need to get this right away and get your basking temps correct

this is what i was instructed to buy when i got him. Also, how quickly would it be necessary to change lights? I spent all my money on buying this unnecessary crap for him and am really low until newt friday. If its completely unrgent i could borrow money, but i was just wondering

Ok that Zoo Med coil is a waste of money - I would get the UVB changed out first when you can - did you go to the website for the UVB I posted ? Here is a thermometer that you need
https://s7d2.scene7.com/is/image/PetSmart/5176729
https://s7d2.scene7.com/is/image/PetSmart/5123303- this is the bulb you need
https://www.pangeareptile.com/store/ima ... p9z-yd.jpg this fixture 24"-- its $50 -- so the bulb and the fixture would be around $70 plus shipping
It looks like they are not carrying the generic fixture I was talking about anymore - these people are fast - please work on getting this stuff - is your little guy eating?
I contacted pangea and they are going to have the fixture for $32 back in on Monday

Alright thank you very much. And yes, not as much as in the beggining but i feed him some cucumbers and crickets this morning and he ate them effortlessly

Please no cucumbers -- no nutritional value and it will give him runny stools - please go off the website I sent for nutrition
