I know this probably gets posted on here a lot but I’m having trouble figuring out where to place the UVB light. We used a coil and recently changed to a tube uvb. We have the hood and the tube is a Reptisun 5.0 UVB t5.

Should I place it outside or inside his tank?

Im attaching pictures of the new UVB, the mesh and his tank. It’s a 40 gallon

Thank you for the help !

Please get the 22" Reptisun 10.0 T 5 bulb -- the 5.0 is not strong enough to go thru your screen w/ the T 5 it can sit on top placed directly over the basking decor piece approx 8-10 inches -- and I would get 2 digital probe thermometers place one on the cool side temps should be 80 's or so and the surface basking temps should be 105-110 for the little one --- the stick ons are inaccurate and give only ambient temps -- I would also replace the paper in the tank w/ some textured NON adhesive shelf liner cut to the size of the tank and clean w/ vinegar /water 50/50 --- you can find this at Walmart or your local home improvement store --

I am buying the 10.0 uvb bulb, so whenever I get that one it’s okay to place on top of the mesh ?

Is the the 10.0 a long tube or a coil? The coil goes in a dome you don't want that - depending on the long tube bulb T 5 or T 8 will determine on your screen- for a 40+ gallon tank a T 5 is recommended

Im buying a 10.0 tube uvb light because the hood came with a 5.0. It’s also a T5

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!
is tape safe for fixing something in my leopard geckos hide?
Day 3 of brumation. It's a struggle. I really miss my little guy. 😔
