I’m new and want to set up everything for when I bring a bearded home, I just need more information of what I need, I have a wooden zen habitat4x2x2, thermometer/hygrometer, reptisun 10.0 uvb t5ho, sun blaster fixture reflector size 34, I have ceramic heat emitter as well as Philips par 38 90w which I want to mount it on the inside, I have some decor, hiding space. What else do I need aside from all that and if the items I have work for the set up. Thank you :)

Welcome you have definitely done your homework and gotten good lighting- you will need these
2 digital probe thermometers - the uvb needs to go inside the tank approx 12-15 inches directly above the basking decor - I would recommend the basking bulb sit on top of the screen - your heat emitter on top of screen in center of the tank--

I would get 2 digital probe thermometers, one to monitor badking and one for the cool side.
I inserted a picture of the ones that I bought so those are no good?

They can be used in the tank for ambient - but you want 2 digital probe thermometers - zoo med pet smart and Petco carry them - I also recommend a digital probe hygrometer -- zoo med sells them too- you want the probe placed on the center back wall of the tank-- optimal humidity is 40-50% nothing under 20 and over 70%

Thank you so it’s not recommended for the baskin and the heat emmiter to be on the inside? These are the lamps I bought

They can be it's up to you - it's just easier to have them on top- but you do want the uvb inside the tank-- utilize the bars running inside the tank on the screen

Can beardies eat Mustard Greens? Hope so I bought some along with some Cilantro. Needed to try something different. He won't eat his broccoli or cauliflower he used it eat it. So I thought I'd give it a try.

My female bearded dragon has recently started gasping for air all the time. She can’t get sleep or really do anything because she has such a difficult time breathing. I think it might be a RI but I’m not completely sure. Any thoughts?
