It’s 109 and taking it with a digital probe. For uvb repti sun 10.0. Also today around the area there was pieces fallen off that might have been shed or the cream is drying up.

Does it look like it’s going away I just gave her a bath and it seems to have gone to normal except for a little left but I think we are making progress.

My guess is that area will eventually start to shed and the skin underneath it will be brightly colored and fresh looking. It doesn't look like yellow fungus from what I can tell by the photos.

No--- use right away-------- the bulb you want to replace w/a better one -- use a Reptisun 10.0 T 8 -- take the plastic cover off the fixture leave it off ---the fixture needs to go inside the tank approx 6-8 inches from basking decor w/ it directly over the decor ------ you can use these to hang the fixture '
3 M command Velcro fasteners- picture hanging wire – long plastic zip ties--- potted plant wire hangers - shoe laces -- fishing line

No the bulb is not strong enough to go thru the screen -- the screen will block 30% of those rays - if you can take the screen off where the UVB is unobstructed you can do that make sure the basking decor is 6-8 inches from the UVB -- I posted some things you can use to hang the fixture w/ ---------and NO plastic cover leave it off

No the clear plastic cover covering the bulb --- if you change out the bulb leave that cover your taking off to get to the bulb off

Zip ties work good --- have one on each end but not so close they slip off --- you will need to change out the bulb in 6 months -- did you get the Reptisun 10.0 bulb?-- they are the best on the market at this time -- make sure you mark your calendar or make a note - T 8 's only last for 6 months
