UVB distance from basking rock


Beardie name(s)
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?

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!
