I recently built a big custom cage (19"×36"×50") for my male veiled chameleon (apx 7 months old) I have been using the reptisun 5.0 UVB and 75watt daylight basking spot lamp. With the size of the new cage it was not getting warm enough in his cage so about a week ago I added a second 40w basking spot lamp for the other side. On good days it's around 82° in his basking area but when its drafty the basking area wont get above 70°.
I closed 2 sides of the sage with plexiglass attempting to keep some heat in with no luck. I live in WA state so my house sits around 60°.
I am looking for the best option for a tube style uvb and advice for heat.
I have tried regular 75 watt bulbs which I have read on here but they weren't cutting it.
He is happy, healthy, and active I am just trying to keep his set up perfect. Thanks!
