I have made a custom cage for my 1 year old dragon Rukia. It's bioactive. I finally got the correct basking Temps. But I am worried I got the incorrect UVB light. It has 2 platforms for her to sit on, the basking one which is 14 inches from ceiling and the other platform is only 8.5 Inches from the ceiling...(I didn't realize how close the one is to the ceiling and how it would affect the lighting situationwhen I made the cage). I need to figure out what UVB light would be best for her. The interior is 50 inch width.

SHE IS CURRENTLY IN A SMALL CAGE..NOT THIS ONE YET.

I would probably get the Arcadia Pro 12% kit and set that over the lower of the two platforms, next to the basking light. If you set it along the back, it will create a gradient going toward the front and allow slightly stronger UVB along the ramp to the higher platform if desired, while still providing nice shade areas on the other side. The 24'' version should be sufficient to cover the platform evenly.

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?
