Set-Up Review

Hello there,

I have had my Beardie for a few months but as a new owner I'm worried if I've setup the terrarium correctly. I've attached some pictures and would LOVE feedback to ensure I'm giving my Beardie (Spud) the best I can.

Thank you in advance! P.S I was given all you see from the owner who could no longer keep her.

Well Spud is going to need a new bigger tank -- 75-120 gallon tank --- the aluminium foil on the UVB is to block the light or to reflect the UVB rays? If your trying to block the rays not so good if your trying to reflect the rays it needs to be behind the bulb -- like a mirror so its reflecting the rays downward --- what kind of bulb is it and is it a T 5 or a T 8 -- these bulbs have different placement and distance --- also how are you getting basking temps? I see only a stick on you need 2 digital probe thermometers please --- the probe needs to sit on the place where she basks wait 10 mn or so get the temp it should be 95-100 --- I would also invest in a 24" fixture like a Zoo Med or a Arcadia Pro T 5 or a Sunblaster Nano Tech -- this would go right into a 75-120 gallon tank --- but you need to get your UVB fixed ASAP-- the way its set up now shes getting little to NO UVB
