How do I make uvb setup work?

110110-5496952962.jpg
I bought a new reptisun terrarium hood with reptisun uvb t5 lamp. I have exo terra terrarium and there are plastic bars on the top, plus fine mesh. I can’t find any way to hang under mesh. Is there any way to make this work or do I need to get another fixture setup?

What distance is it currently from UV to basking surface?

8 inches to basking surface is ideal if UVB is mounted on top of screen.

You can cut apportion of the screen out where the UVB sits so its unobstructed then it would need to be 12-15 inches above - make sure your getting basking temps w/ a digital probe thermometer -- I see only a stick on they re inaccurate --- take the probe place where he sits for basking get temp about 10 min or so-------95-100
