Bearded dragon heating for a 4x2x2 enclosure

Postby Banjobeardie » Thu Sep 17, 2020 12:09 pm

Just asking for the best heating options for a bigger enclosure. Would a 100 watt zoo med bulb suffice? I know people also use bulbs not specifically meant for reptiles but I don’t know what exactly to look for. I’d love to hear some suggestions.

Hello,

The wattage of the basking bulb will depend on how far away your basking spot will be.
Normally, on average a 100 watt halogen flood or spot bulb will work just fine. A good
distance is usually 10 or so inches away, 12 possibly. Do you have a temp gun or a
digital probe to properly measure temperatures with?
You can post a few pictures also just so we can help be sure it's all setup well for you
