Are you using just for lighting in the tank ? I use a regular 60 watt old style so it gives off some heat - I am using it to increase the middle temps in my tank -- its getting them up in the 90's and now w/ the warmer weather I have had to cut off one of the basking bulbs and shutting the reg watt off during the afternoon -- the LED do not give off heat -- do you need that bright of a bulb ?

Isn't the higher the the lumens the better there sight right or Kelvin ? Because they see more of the spectrum

No I just heard that LED lights protect the eyes from constricted pupils and such things from UVB rays and plus more like bouncing around better I've heard

1500 lumens is nice and bright. 3000k is soft white like it says which should look like a regular incandescent bulb. It would probably work well enough to brighten the enclosure a bit along with the other bulbs without producing additional heat which would throw off your gradient. Another option would be to get a dual T5 fixture so you could put a T5 UVB tube next to a 6500k daylight grow bulb. I think that's overkill in most cases though. I can't say if it will affect her health either way.

Thanks bud so what does the soft compared to the 1500 do differently ? She see more colors on the spectrum?either way she should see better which would affect her mood right?

lumens pretty much equates to brightness. the color temperature (3000k) tends to make the light look more yellow (lower number) vs bluer (higher number). That is how it looks to us though, so I'm not quite sure how those equate to what a dragon sees.

So I need to get something with higher lumens I just shut it off I'm not messing with it because she clearly doesn't like it she's out now and she's Basked a bit and eaten since I've turned it off. Thanks Cooper you've been a big help like always
