T5 arcadia 14% setup

Hello,
My dragon, Fire, is about 7 months old. I've moved him from a 24"x18"x18" to a zen 4'x2'x2'. I have his 24" T5HO with an arcadia 14% and reflector mounted inside the tank off centered towards the cool side. This basking spot 5" off the ground and I measured 19" from the T5. Everything on the cool side is 19"+ away from the T5, with lots of hide. Should I be worry about the strong blub, or should I swap it out for a reptisun 10 (I was using this in the smaller enclosure). All his temp reading are normal, basking 102, hot 95, cool 80.

No your good I had my 14% bulb approx 17-18 inches directly above the basking decor you can drop it down to another inch or so --- watch his behavior - you want him basking under it -- he might not want the hotter temps now as well - usually as they get older they like the temps 95-100 basking - the 90's is good for your middle of the tank and cool side is good at 80's --
