He is about 14" long, tank is 4x2, 8% uvb;~35% uva light which is 36"long, and a 150 watt Zoomed ceramic heat lamp. I am using a sand substrate and feed him his crickets in the same bowl as the greens. He is in my bedroom which can get a little cool. The highest point in the basking spot can get up to about 105 but the rest of cage can be as low as 74...I'm thinking I my need another lamp. The lighting and heat lamp are about 28" from the floor..should I lower them. I did buy a couple books but they aren't very specific about details like this. This is my first lizard.
btw I kept the heat lamp on all night and he made a little "burrow" at the oppsite end of the cage. I'm thinking I should maybe get a lower power lamp to keep on all night.
Thanks for your replies
