Hello,

Just so I have this straight, are you dealing with one dragon individually right now, or a group of dragons currently in the tank?
The Arcadia D3 12% tube bulb is a great bulb so the UVB should be strong. You can have that bulb at or around 10 or so
inches from them. If the holes on the racks are wide then you can rest the lights on top of that for now as long as it is mounted
securely.

We have a bunch of babies in one tank. My daughter already bought the T5 as suggested above, hope that is trying enough. Does it matter if it is for one or many

Ok please put your basking decor directly under the uvb 8-10 inches - watch the behavior and let me know what she's doing the cooking racks maybe to wide and then we would need to adjust the distance
Put the light 8-10 inches away. Everything is going great, the suck one is no longer bloated or flipping onto its back

Ok are they all able to bask under the lights? I am glad to hear the one is no longer bloated or flipping on to his back - please watch for the runts and the ones getting picked on - they will not be able to get to the food or lights -- you may haft to feed those or the one separate -- I rescued Blaze from his clutch mates as he was getting picked on and not able to eat like he should - I bought him from a breeder and she told me he was getting picked on etc ---

Hello,

A lot of people use the black soldier fly larvae or phoenix worms because they are good sources of calcium, low fat
& have a good protein ratio.
