Please get rid of the red bulb ASAP-- dragons need dark and cool to sleep and no colored bulbs for anything-- it's hurting her eyes and disturbing her sleep-- you need a bright white basking bulb that keeps basking temps 95-100 taken w/ a digital probe thermometer-- this is what starts digestion - this would be why she's not eating!

I thought the red light would be okay for day time just keep it off for night. For the basking bulb just a white heat lamp with no uvb correct? I have a power sun but that UVB plus the UVB may be too much. I will go out and get a white basking bulb tomorrow.

Or here’s an idea, I can use the power sun as her basking and uvb light and just not use the bar UVB anymore even though I just bought a new one. My house is 75-78 at night is that not too cold for them?

Ok this is what you want --- the MVB is what brand and wattage - that is good for heat and basking --- and some UVB they usually dont put out enough UVB so it is always recommended and long tube fixture be added --- so please get rid of the red bulb all together --- tell me what long tube UVB your using T 5 or a T 8 so we can get it properly placed and distanced - both of the MVB and UVB's need proper placement and distance to be effective ----

The MVB (powersun) I have is 80Watt by zoomed. Red Bulb has been taken out. The long UVB bulb is a 10.0 T5 by zoomed. So you are saying run both the PowerSun and UVB bar bulb at the same time?

Run at the same time 12 hrs on and 12 hrs off he will go to the long tube if he needs it---

You do not want the basking bulb closer than 6 inches

From the highest point in her cage she still is 17.5 inches away from the PowerSun and about 14.5 inches from the UVB bulb bar.
