Hi all! I am upgrading to a 75 gallon tank which is about 18 inches high. I have a wide hole cover so my uvb will be sitting on top of the cover. How far below can the basking decor be to where my beardie is getting the uvb he needs? Also, does my beardie sitting atop the rock count in the distance measurement because he is raised up 2+ inches or so than the actual decor pieces height. Thanks!!

One more question, so if I mount the uvb light into the tank which is 18 in height, his basking decor is about 4 inches tall, which would put him about 14 inches away , so he would be good then right?

I see my lizard is being given Allopurinol 100ml tablet 10mg/ml (0.4) and tramadol 0.2ml every other day to help with gout. I have tramadol at home can I water it down and give it to her and if so do anyone know how much to water down ?
