I currently have a red light and a basking spot light at the top of my new cage. Do I need another light or heat source twards the bottom?? Also I was wondering what my lighting schedule with each light should be.
Thank You

question 1- why do you have a red light?
question 2- where is your uvb light?

no you do not need heat at the bottom, your cham has to have somehwere to go in case they get too hot.
most light schedules are 12 hrs on, 12 hrs off. no night time heat source needed.

As state before, why red? nothing at the bottom as chams need a temp gradient.
you need a bulb appropriate of giving you the right temperatures and a UVB bulb (preferably the reptisun 5.0 linear tube)

absolutely no light at night. no heat at night unless temp drops below 50's

If the night time temps drop below 50's, use an outside heat source, such as a space heater. do not leave lights on. they have a hard time sleeping in the light.
