Interior basking bulb/lamp suggestions


New member
Hi. :) I am getting my daughter's beardie enclosure set up--it will be our first so we are newbies. We have been doing research and want to get the enclosure set up before we look for the dragon. The enclosure is a Symton 4x2x2. I ordered an Arcadia Ceramic Reflector - 8" and an Arcadia Solar Basking Flood - 150 Watt. But we want all of the lighting inside the enclosure. The Acadia 8" reflector is ridiculously huge--I don't want the lamp taking up that much space. And I'm thinking the 150w flood may be too hot for inside the enclosure. So, two questions: (1) What is a good lamp or reflector to house the bulb in that has a much smaller footprint and won't look like there's a beach ball in there. LOL. And (2) Should I get a lower wattage spot bulb instead or is a flood bulb okay to use? I do understand the bulb wattage may be trial and error, but hoping some of you with experience with this size enclosure can let me know what works for you. Also, I do plan to have it hooked up to a dimming thermostat if that matters for either of those questions. (For UVB, we have the Zoo-Med Reptisun T5 High Output 36 Inch Terrarium Hood and will be getting the Zoo Med ReptiSun 10.0 HO T5 UVB Lamp, 39 W, 34" L bulb.)

So to any reading this, how on earth do I post a thread 😅 New here, possibly too old for this

I have questions about bubbles on our bearded dragons eye.

So he’s gotten bubbles on his eye. We wiped them off and it’s only been twice in the last few weeks. Should we be concerned? No coughing or congestion. He’s very hungry and sleeps well. He’s 8-9 month range. His humidity is 30-40 day time and as high as 50-55 at night to early morning.
Should we be concerned?
