Okay if i put it in my tank its to close from what i gather it needs to be a certain distance away from him? If it’s about 6-7 at most away from his baskin spot

For a T5 top of screen 8-10 inches but I would put it at 8 -- adjust the decor piece its going to be easier

I looked its about 1mm thick ( i took out a tape)
The holes are good - it's the thickness I am concerned about- you can try putting on top your distance should be 8-10 inches I would go w/ 8---- watch his behavior
i took out a tape its about 1 mm thick at most

As long as its keeping temps to what you need the bulb is fine --- quality may not be there as I have heard they blow out pretty fast -- you can always get Flukers basking bulb or Arcadia Halogen as well - you dont want any daytime bulbs they have a coating on them that is harmful to the eyes -- no yellowish or off white bulbs it needs to be a clear bright white bulb

i feel so sad reading your about me 😢
Clapton is acclimating okay I think. He's quick as lightning so I'm not sure how much I should bring him out of his house yet. He's not at all interested in his salad though. I wonder if I should change what I'm giving him. Least he's eating his crickets.

Things to do:
Buy calcium powder
Material to raise surface for basking spot
Scenery decals for back of tank
Taking my beardie for a walk
Hi everyone, I have a question please. I have a thick branch I got from outside. It has been in freezing temperatures so I know that it is insect free. I took it off the ground and sat it up during a night we got down to 15 so the entire thing would freeze. Well tonight I put white vinegar all over it too cleanse it since it won't fit in my oven. Do I need to rinse with water tomorrow or is it fine left alone dried?
