In my beardies enclosure I'm using a T5 Reptisun 10 uvb and I'm trying to figure out whether or not I can place it on top of the mesh or not. I've seen a ton of different answers to this and I'm having trouble figuring it out. So some advice would be much appreciated with this. Thanks!

Is the screen a fine mesh like a screen door? If so it needs to go inside the tank approx 12-15 inches directlya above the basking decor -- if its a wide hole type it can go on top w/ the decor directly underneath 8-10 inches --

It is fine mesh but the furthest I could get it from his basking spot if it's inside is around 10-11 inches unfortunately. As for right now it seems the best I can do is have it on top of the tank but with the mesh on top moved out of the way.

You can take the screen off or cut it out or get a different piece of basking decor --

I just set Swordtail's timer for his bath and paused it so I could actually fill his soaking bowl up and he crawled over my phone and canceled the timer 🤣
Mirage came out of brumation on April 26. He was doing great. On May 2 he started acting funny. We just redid his tank, and he keeps going into one of his hides. He just lays there. He shows no intrest in food. HELP!
