setting up a 40 gallon for leopard gecko baby lighting/heating question

Beardie name(s)
hello everyone, I believe I'm going to get a baby leopard gecko during this summer to have plenty of time for it, and gain experience with younger reptiles and raising them. I am aware that I should quarantine it before I put it in Chester's room (my bd) I'm going to get it from a local breeder and maybe start breeding when he/she gets older. I have done lots of research and to my understanding, people use either under-tank heating or a simple watted bulb that admits heat And a UVB output lamp/fixture so the question I have for this forum is what is best for a baby? or for long term? I am going to use paper as bedding and deep clean the tank when he arrives. when he or she gets older I will either do tile or bioactive but just keeping it paper for now so I can moderate his stool and behavior.(reminder I don't have the gecko yet just preparing) thank you again!

Hi I have a hypo bearded dragon called Buddy. He is two, and I have a lot of experience looking after him. He has never benn sick before so I am hoping he will not!
Hello , im still figureing out this platform,
So violet laid eggs, weeks ago, she was doing very well , in the last 3 to 4 days her poop was more than runny . Haven't changed much in her diet , an appetite is very good. Should I be considering a parasites remedy as she does get bloated as soon as she starts to eat.
My baby beardie likes to sit in their water bowl. I'm curious on whether it would hurt them or not.
Any thoughts an knowledge will be helpful. Thank u
