12 - 15 inches above the floor? it doesnt have to be directly above the basking spot right?
you want the distance 12-15 inches directly above his basking decor piece --- so place a piece of decor under the UVB w/ the distance posted

Sorry im kinda confused, the uvb doesnt have to be directly above his basking decor where the heat lamp is but place another decor directly under the uvb with the distance of 12 - 15 inches?

If you cant get them together the basking lamp and the UVB then yes if they are together so hes getting both at the same time your good -- you just dont want the distance for the UVB greater than 15 inches - it will do no good for the dragon

Okay thank you, i will place another decor under the uvb with the distance u said 🙂
It was a pain putting up the uvb, spent the whole day with it. I hope this is good. The uvb is about 13 inches directly above the log on the left side. Is there anything i have to change or is it good? 🙂

Look good - watch his behavior - his colors should pop and appetite increase

I just got him today, he seems okay! He is at the basking spot right now. :)
Ok watch his behavior - beings you just got him he will go thru relocation stress- his eating will be off but the correct temps and uvb will help him adjust

He has just been on the tiles so far which it isnt directly under the uvb, he is still going to be fine with the uvb right?

Getting ready for another day. Feeling sleepy. 😴
I just walked into my room and instead of looking at me, Swordtail's eyes darted directly to the ice cream drumstick I'm holding
Finally replaced Swordtail's substrate
I miss you so much, Amaris 💔
What is a quick way to warm up a cold beardie? His heating element went out overnight and now he's very cold.
