Make sure you use a light fixture with a ceramic socket. A 100 or 160wt. bulb will melt a normal fixture & could catch fire. Also, it is easy to raise the basking spot, there are so many different basking logs, rocks, branches, etc. available at most pet stores. Just make sure you check the temps in various stages on the branch. They will cook themselves if the temps are too high. I like to have mine at about 110f. I don't see too much mouth gaping at that temp.

Good luck.
