New viv, trouble with lighting

The new 120 gallon is almost finished! Last night I was having trouble with the lighting, said "screw it" and my beardie and I went to sleep on the recliner. Okay, day 2 - back to the issue of lighting. I've been using a petsmart thrive lamp for 2.5 years and works great. I wanted to continue using it. However, I'm a little nervous about it just sitting on top of the viv like it was with the 40gal (the screen seems 'fragile'). I bought a lamp stand! Lol max length on this is 31" .. it's horrible. There's another with a max of 36", will that help? Should I change lamps? Should I change stands? Are those clip on lights any good? Ya know the ones that are advertised for turtles but people say are fine for Bearded dragons? Is that true? All help is appreciated, thank you!

The lamp stand is as high as it can go...

I'm using a thrive lamp which is a little bulky, long and heavy. It concerns me to use that lamp on this stand. I need alternatives. If you know of one, please let me know. Like I said, I'm contemplating clip on lamps.

I dont know if you want to try another lamp stand but PetSmart has these
if you have a PetSmart in your area I would go look at them -- I am not hot on Thrive products -see if they are any better -- I used a hospital stand for IV tubes when I had to use one -- worked great -- I have also used the lamp clamps that come w/ the domes -- those are tricky as they loosen up --

Hello , im still figureing out this platform,
So violet laid eggs, weeks ago, she was doing very well , in the last 3 to 4 days her poop was more than runny . Haven't changed much in her diet , an appetite is very good. Should I be considering a parasites remedy as she does get bloated as soon as she starts to eat.
