Night infrared light?

I've read places that infrared isn't a color that beardy's can see. I'm a new beardy owner should I install one to keep my beardy from going into brumation, or let nature run its course when it eventually happens? Right now I'm running a 36" reptisun T5 10.0 and zoo med 150w basking during the day. Please give me any info. She's going through her first shed with me. I bathed her for roughly 5-10 mins today to help with her shedding, and haven't been handling her much the past couple days since she started. Thanks everyone!

Dragons have an extra cone in their eye compared to human eyes. This allows them to see much more of the light spectra than humans can, and most likely in a much more vivid manner.
If you can see the light it produces, your dragon can too.

IF you want extra heat at night, you will want a ceramic heat emitter. The red/black/blue "nighttime" bulbs are light sources that will disturb your dragons sleep.

Then nursing them back to health and their final family home. I regularly help my reptiles vet with emergency appointments and I also provide the care in my little quenteen,
