Welcome to the forum---- hes a cutie---- your set up looks ok but I was looking at the UVB what are you using? The fixture looks like a T 8 and a Thrive hood--- ? If so is there a reflector in that hood? If not I recommend you upgrade the fixture to one w/a reflector and to a 24" fixture--- like a Zoo Med -- they need reflectors in them and the one your using is not really any good -- your baby is getting really NO UVB if this is what I think it is --- please ask if you need more help -- T 8's need to be inside the tank they are not strong enough to go thru the screen --- and your probably gonna want to upgrade the tank at some point and a 24" fixture would go into a bigger tank -- think of it as a investment now
