They are so cute when they look out the tank from the front at the door -- make sure you get some digital probe thermometers I see digital but no probes - your getting ambient temps you want actual surface basking temps -- IR guns are good but can get thrown off by certain basking materials of the decor -- where is your UVB?

Errtu is a handsome little guy, and he's lucky to have ended up in such a loving home. It's wild seeing how enormous the enclosure looks when he's so small.

I have an infrared surface thermometer. You can see part of it on top of the tank in that 1 pic. The uvb is on top of the tank. It is a T5 tube type. Thank you!

The screen on the tank is a fine mesh like a screen door or a wide hole type? This will determine where that UVB needs to be placed and distanced

I sure hope this is right. This is what I was told by a few people.

Thank you! Hey I wanted to ask I'd this not correct for my uvb height? I got the T5 specifically so I could set it on top. I've been told on here that the hide needs to be closer to the uvb. I have every little in there currently due to Coccidia. The bask is a 150w with a dimmer. Thanks!

For what it's worth it looks like you have the same mesh I do and when I was looking into it the distributor (dubiaroaches.com) said the mesh blocked over 40% of the uvb (44 or 46 I believe). I wasn't able to find the info again to link but that's what convinced me to hang the light since the calculations used for "wide hole" mesh assume 33% is blocked.

I also considered using a arcadia14% bulb to make up the difference but without a UVB tester was afraid I'd end up with too much.

Tracie might have better info just figured I'd share my research since it looks like we're using the same enclosure

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!
