Just curious if this can propose a problem? I have a repi-sun 5.0 and sometimes my Carpet likes to get on the screen and hang up-side down right under the UVB light. He never hangs under the Basking light. Thanks guys.
ya those bulbs are the same (heat wise) as a heat emitting basking bulb..it will be fine if that is set closeley..but as to not chance it..put a few spacers under it and you will be "for sure" about it..
Move your basking light so that it covers closely, the same area where your lizard hangs under the uv. Lizards that bask seek bright light source since in nature the bright light source is generally where the heat is. Its important that your lizard basks.
It may be trying to warm up from the uv tube.
Definately raise the heat up from the cage top to avoid burns.
I've heard the same if he is basking under the UVB bulb all the time, everyday you might want to give him a d3 supplement every other week. If he is just basking for a couple of hours he is just getting his d3 for the day, no biggie no need to worry.
