Placing the hygrometer?

So I just ordered a hydrometer and I was wondering where to place it, I looked at the other posts about this and the replies said to place it at the back however my bearded dragon's back wall is climbable. The hygrometer I ordered uses double-sided tape to mount. I posted a photo of my bearded dragon's enclosure so you can see where I should place it.

Ok so please get rid of the red bulbs in the tank -- those are harmful to the eyes and will / can cause long term eye damage and keep the dragon up all night - you want ambient temps of 65-75 at night - the log going up by the basking light is not so good either - if he climbs that the light is going to be shining right in his eyes -- I dont see a UVB -- and the loose substrate I would get rid of as well - how big is the tank it looks small -- sorry I dont mean to nit pick but I am concerned for the health of the dragon - w/ the hygrometer I would place on the back center wall of the tank but does he climb that back ground? Please adjust the husbandry your dragon is getting sick w/ out proper lighting also how are you taking surface basking temps? I dont see any temp gauges as well - you want 2 digital probe thermometers in the tank one for surface basking temps and one for the cool side of the tank -- IR guns are good but can be off by certain basking materials and hammocks are one they cant read off of

I would look at upgrading the tank to a 120 gallon/ 4x2x2 -
petsmart is also carrying the zens as well you can make payments on them

Does he climb in the center of the wall?

What is a quick way to warm up a cold beardie? His heating element went out overnight and now he's very cold.
