Hi everyone,
Just want to say first that I much appreciate the info I've got by reading over this forum the past few days. I have a question of my own now. =)
My wife and I are now the proud owners of 2 baby beardies. We aren't new to lizards but are new to beardies. We had an iguana for several years. Took us awhile after he died (sniff, sniff) but we finally decided to put that huge cage of his to good use and get some new pets. Currently I've got their basking light all set up but need/want to put a uvb light in now. My issue is how to mount it. We've got a 75gallon glass critter cage. Two, 22" openings on the top. I have not yet seen a hood that would fit this. And even if I did, I've been reading that the light should be within 12" of the basking spot. This is not going to happen without either raising the basking spot or lowering the light. I'm not sure how I would go about attaching a light to a glass plate like that if I did choose to place the light lower in the cage. Any idea? Pointers to someplace with a hood that would fit?
The cage does have metal locking grills that cover each side, but we arent using them as it seems pointless. I am assuming when the beardies get larger we still will not have any issues with an open top but I wouldn't mind any opinions on this also as it would help determine if a hooded light is even a good idea to begin with..
To sum that up.. ;) the cage is.. 48"Long 20"Tall 18"wide
with 2, 22" openings on top
Thanks much,
Shawn
