Also,How far away should I put this light?
Okay I'm going to get him today so if I have any more questions I'll get back to youGet him outside if your temps are 65+ degrees- plastic tote direct sunlight 15 min or longer- please don't leave him supervise him-
this is okay if this is the only basking light you have --- if you have a regular solid bright white bulb use that and shut that one off -- you can use the outside sun for UVB till the other one comes in - he will be fine a few days w/ out UVB --- its long periods of time you dont want to do thatAnd this light is 100% okay to use until I get his T5 light fixture in the mail?? Should be here soon.
