Hi friends:), i have on the order right now a 2x2x4' mesh cage from zoo-med for a chameleon. I'm wondering what type of lighting you guy's would suggest for this setup? heating as well, what wattage for heat should i use? i have read a reptisun 5.0 but i would rather use just the dome fixtures as i have 6.

Thanks in advance, marcqel

Yeah, it sucks but you will need a tube fixture. You can go with the coil bulbs but it is not my first choice. with that 2x2x4 cage the tube light will give you much better coverage. I would start with a 40 watt incan if your cham is young and then you can move up as he grows or as your ambient temps fluctuate.
