Welcome! I read this post with tears in my eyes. I love how you immediately stepped in to care for your beardie in more ways than one. You are definitely in the right place and there are so many of us here to help. There are others you are helping as well, trust me.
Welcome to the family- Pogo is beautiful!
It can go on top (your screen looked like wide hole in the pics). 12 to 15 inches from Pogo. If it's on top i would try to get closer to 12 inches than 15. If you can get your ubv light and basking light to over lap a little, that is the idea situation for the lights.
The t5 is the uvb, the basking is for heat. You should have some kind of decor that Pogo can climb up on, place the basking directly over that decore. Pogo should like between 95 and 100 degrees temp in the basking. Try to situate the uvb so that it is on him in the basking area also. The uvb is needed so they produce vitamin d3 naturally, d3 is needed by their body to absorb calcium. It prevents metabolic bone disease. The basking is for food digestion, they can't process food correctly if they can't get up to temp. If you don't have room to make the light from each bulb overlap, you can setup 2 areas with decor and pogo should move between the two as needed. It's just less work for them if the light overlaps because they can get heat and uvb in one place. If you set up two different pieces of decor, make sure the distance between the top of the decor and the uvb is less than 15 inches.
Currently trying not to stress over my anemic dragon....she is being treated, but I don't agree with her treatment plan and have been seeking out a second opinion from another vet. If anyone else has dealt with anemia, please let me know how it was resolved. I am losing sleep over this
Another post lol. My beardie does not like enclosures. Her tank is the kids room and she has created a nesting/bed spot in the corner. She will cuddle with my son but she know when the lights are out and the kids go to sleep, she literally goes to her bed like she is our 3rd baby. I love her. And to think, I never wanted a beardie lol
Please help. My beardie is my baby and I am worried she may be egg bound but I can't tell. She is over 2 yrs old and has never laid an egg. She has been swollen for two days and can't tell if she may be impacted or egg bound. Please help.
