Temperature for hot country

Most accurate will be number one. IR guns are good but have trouble with some surfaces like hammocks. They can also get confused on some materials due to issues with how it measures heat and how those surfaces store or emit heat, meaning the gun can read higher or lower than actual temps on certain materials. You can use the probe to get an accurate temp, then check it with the gun to see if it matches. If it does, you can use your gun for daily checks and just use the probe to check weekly or every other week or something to make sure your gun is still working correctly.
All right thanks, will try that.

I also wish to confirm since the UVB should only span through 2/3 of the tank length from the hot side, does it mean the remaining 1/3 length which is also the cool side of the tank (no basking light) will be totally without any lighting and a bit dark?

You can always put a LED household bulb on that cool side for lighting - I have a 120 gallon tank and have a 75 watt basking bulb in the middle of my tank that lights up the cool side - my UVB sits in the front middle of my tank w / that basking bulb behind the UVB --- UVB is in the tank and the basking bulb is on top of screen - those temps run in the 90's in the middle of my tank - you can also use a UVB that is 1/2 the length of the tank rather than 2/3 of the tank - it is up to you - I am using a 24" inch in my tanks

is my bearded dragons left side supposed to be hard, it’s right above its left leg in the back, it’s kind of hard? i feed it insects and greens. not sure if it’s normal or not? i can post pictures.
His first vet visit went well! Abelardo Texas looks good physically according to his new Dr.
Unfortunately, on the fecal it showed that he has Coccidia. Not a surprise honestly... he has been having diarrhea since I got him. I got Albon, F10, and a steam cleaner on hand.
I'm kinda freaked out, I heard coccidia is a beast to get rid of. Wish me luck! 😭
Sorry didn’t mean to post the last post was an accident, but I do have a question I have a 7 month old dragon, her name is Smaug and she will not eat her salad I have tried everything that I can, just wondering if anyone can help me because I’m stuck and I know that she should probably be eating them by now! If anyone can give me ideas that would be great!
