    Trying to figure out T5 lamp placement.

    It is fine mesh but the furthest I could get it from his basking spot if it's inside is around 10-11 inches unfortunately. As for right now it seems the best I can do is have it on top of the tank but with the mesh on top moved out of the way.

    Trying to figure out T5 lamp placement.

    In my beardies enclosure I'm using a T5 Reptisun 10 uvb and I'm trying to figure out whether or not I can place it on top of the mesh or not. I've seen a ton of different answers to this and I'm having trouble figuring it out. So some advice would be much appreciated with this. Thanks!

    What should I use for an in tank dehumidifier?

    Also I just looked at that sunblaster thread you have there. Does this apply to any fixtures like this one or just any fixtures in general? I have one from vivarium electronics and it looks exactly the same.

    What should I use for an in tank dehumidifier?

    I wake up to it between 50-60% and currently during the day it fluctuates between 41 and 42%. The high humidity at night not being a problem is good to know though. I've been worried about him developing a respiratory infection as a result. Edit: Im not home most of the day but my dad says the...

    What should I use for an in tank dehumidifier?

    The humidity has been getting a bit high in my beardies tank mainly at night, and the in tank dehumidifiers I got don't really seem to be doing anything. I have a dehumidifier for my room as well and that's definitely helping but it's not quite enough for how humid it's been recently. Just...

    Beardie constantly trying to dig and hiding under carpet

    Alright I'll keep business as usual for the most part then and at least offer him his worms. And that's a good idea, never thought about having them hold it there lol. I'll look into getting the roaches then. How many roaches do you think I should do if I normally give 10 superworms each tuesday...

    Beardie constantly trying to dig and hiding under carpet

    I have it on top but theres an open space for the t5 to go through and it is roughly 12-15 inches away. And he always has access to fresh water, I leave a water bowl out for him during the day that he'll drink from occasionally. And alright I'll go with that site then. I'm just waiting for a...

    Beardie constantly trying to dig and hiding under carpet

    I use the probes and a small ir mainly just for his basking spot, but I still check the basking every now and then with a probe. I have a tube t5 and he does get salad. I want to switch to dubias or something better but I can only get them through the mail so I've been waiting for it to warm up...

    Beardie constantly trying to dig and hiding under carpet

    So my beardie Emmett has been acting weird since yesterday afternoon. I wanna say around 6-7pm he started constantly digging under his reptile carpet and has been hiding under there trying to dig through the glass ever since. I've checked his temps and everything and they're all good with his...

    Found a spot on my beardies tail

    A note for the neosporin, make sure you go for neosporin original if you decide to put any on. The pain relief kind can be toxic.

    What to use to cover reflection?

    So I was looking at this T5 Reptisun 5.0 with this VE 24" fixture that I'm hoping to mount inside the enclosure on his basking side. For the bulb I called zoomed and they said just make sure he can't get within 6" of the bulb which he already can't. Just wanted your thoughts on this and any...

    What to use to cover reflection?

    Well it was either the reflections or his uv light not putting out enough causing him to pace a lot, but either way since I opened the top for the uv and covered the sides with some newspaper he seems way calmer now and is acting like normal again. Thanks for the advice!

    What to use to cover reflection?

    Well I pulled the screen out enough to where there's now nothing between him and the light, but I just got the T8 last monday and it's roughly 8 or 9 inches away. And he was pacing quite a bit before I pulled the screen out too. At first I was thinking he was just stressed from being on meds for...

    What to use to cover reflection?

    I do have the screen that's more like screen door and placing a t5 as high as 12% is gonna end up being too close to him. So I'll probably have to place it on top with the screen cutout to fit the light. I think I may have figure out why he's been pacing a lot. I've discovered that when he...

    What to use to cover reflection?

    I was looking at possibly doing something like that as well but I'm still weighing my options. How tall is your tank?
