Set up of 120 gallon tank

Postby ashleyrenee444 » Thu Jul 16, 2020 9:13 am

I am upgrading my beardie to a 120gal tank this weekend, from the 45gal tank he is in currently. Will the larger tank require multiple heat sources? It's the standard 120gal, 48"L, 24"W, 24"H. What's the best way to set up multiple heat sources, and does it also require multiple UVB sources?

If anyone has any pictures of their current 120gal setup, I'd appreciate seeing them!!

You need a UVB of 24" fixture and a T 5 bulb- I bright white basking bulb - start w / a 100 watt make sure you have a digital probe thermometer or a infared heat gun- it will be trial and error- w/ bulbs--- here is my tank it's a Zen habitat

You only need one basking spot for heat - my UVB is towards front of tank middle- basking spot is in back
