Hi guys,

I am not looking for something simple I can use for when I take my bearidie out to hang out with us in the bedroom so she can recharge when needed. I was going to get a Arcadia uvb/heat combo bulb and slap in in something I can move around easily.

I'd recommend a MVB.(All in one)
There's a lot of good brands out there

And they are all in one bulbs.

I let my dragon free roam a lot and have tested a lot of different combinations. I've found that sometimes they really prefer just heat so I have an incandescent bulb set out that produces high 90s to about 102 or so. I've also found that they can detect an infrared heat bulb and will pancake under that sometimes. I also use an Arcadia MVB for offering UVB. They are excellent. I have one of the kits that LightYourReptiles sells. The UK version with power converter. The bulbs last for quite a long time (well over a year in my case) and it comes with a good dome fixture for it. This is by far the best MVB I've tested in terms of beam width/output.

For all of these lights, I use a zoomed adjustable lamp stand. They aren't amazing, but are the best option I've seen that is widely available. I also prefer using brooder dome lamps that you can get in the farm/chicken section of a farm supply store like Fleet Farm or Theisens. They are only about $10 and have much higher build quality than reptile specific domes. They are usually rated to 250-300w and come with the hanging wire you need to hang them from the adjustable stand.

i feel so sad reading your about me 😢
Clapton is acclimating okay I think. He's quick as lightning so I'm not sure how much I should bring him out of his house yet. He's not at all interested in his salad though. I wonder if I should change what I'm giving him. Least he's eating his crickets.

Things to do:
Buy calcium powder
Material to raise surface for basking spot
Scenery decals for back of tank
Taking my beardie for a walk
Hi everyone, I have a question please. I have a thick branch I got from outside. It has been in freezing temperatures so I know that it is insect free. I took it off the ground and sat it up during a night we got down to 15 so the entire thing would freeze. Well tonight I put white vinegar all over it too cleanse it since it won't fit in my oven. Do I need to rinse with water tomorrow or is it fine left alone dried?
