Uvb too close?

Postby Deathtrack123 » Mon Mar 30, 2020 1:00 pm

Here is a pic of the set up it's an arcadia t5 12% does it look ok or is it too close it's about 12-13 inches away from her the closest she could get is about 10 inches at max is the set up ok or should I change it asap? she doesn't seem to be bothered by it she has been a bit lethargic and has perked up now so I would think she likes it's also about 14 inches away from her basking spot

You should move the UV over towards the hot end. You need your hottest point to also be your highest UV point. Just like in nature. And you want the cool side to have the lowest UV exposure.
