Hey!
I know I'm using these forums A LOT lately because i'm new to this site and a relatively new bearded dragon owner so I have lots of questions :))
So I'm wondering, how often do you need to replace the basking and uvb bulbs? and the che too for that matter (tho i only use it at night in the winter)

Che's last a long time- I mean years depending on how often they are used - uvb's T 5 approx one year but I recommend every 10-11 months - T 8 every 6 months I recommend 5- basking bulbs get weak over time that's why it's good to get surface basking temps every month or so - some may blow out sooner than others-

What’s the best way to get surface temps? Infared thermometer?
