The crazy energetic behavior is pretty normal after brumation, and a good sign. My dragon will usually run all over and not eat much for a while. He loses a bit of weight but then gains it back when his appetite returns after a few weeks.

As far as lighting goes, a CHE/heat projector will produce infrared which is great for keeping them warm but not as useful for visible light. The T5 produces some visible light along with UVB/A, but I don't find them to be bright enough on their own. I still like to supplement with a halogen or incandescent bulb in order to brighten things up. Might not be necessary, but in the spirit of trying to replicate sunlight, I like to include bright visible light along with intense infrared and UVB over the basking area.

I agree, but i supplement by adding in a normal florescent light. Its only purpose is to brighten things up.

Getting ready for another day. Feeling sleepy. 😴
I just walked into my room and instead of looking at me, Swordtail's eyes darted directly to the ice cream drumstick I'm holding
Finally replaced Swordtail's substrate
I miss you so much, Amaris 💔
What is a quick way to warm up a cold beardie? His heating element went out overnight and now he's very cold.
