Found a gem!

So after many weeks of looking, I've found exacty what I wanted. Its 48x24x24 120 tank! I found it on Facebook marketplace located only 30 minutes away from me. It housed a ball python so there's definitely some modifications I plan on making. I know the uvb lights need to extend 2/3s of the tank . So I plan on taking out the old light fixtures and put in Reptisun T5 10.0 HO lights installed inside. I'm still researching basking lights. For the floor I plan to put in slate. I'm besides my self on decor! I would like to make godzilla a hiding spot out Styrofoam, and have branches going up to his basking spot with a hammock nearby. So my question is what would be your recommendations? Once I can figure out how to post pictures I will.

Make sure the slate you plan to use is not too coarse--- you want a textured slated tile something smooth but not so smooth he will slip--- basking lights are going to be trial and error -- is the tank glass?

T5 light fixtures are expensive. I was looking at buying one from Walmart or home depot, but they don't come in the size that I need. Could I use 2? Instead of one long one? Or should I just bite the bullet and spend the money?

Spend the money --- those ones that come from Home Depot and Walmart do not have reflectors in them and you need a reflector --- it will benefit and maximize the UVB rays to him --- the basking temps and UVB is the most important things in the tank --

you can get a 24" or the 36" I am using a 24" fixture

Hi I have a hypo bearded dragon called Buddy. He is two, and I have a lot of experience looking after him. He has never benn sick before so I am hoping he will not!
Hello , im still figureing out this platform,
So violet laid eggs, weeks ago, she was doing very well , in the last 3 to 4 days her poop was more than runny . Haven't changed much in her diet , an appetite is very good. Should I be considering a parasites remedy as she does get bloated as soon as she starts to eat.
My baby beardie likes to sit in their water bowl. I'm curious on whether it would hurt them or not.
Any thoughts an knowledge will be helpful. Thank u
