Lighting for my new cage


New Member
I just move my chameleon to his new 24x24x36 screen cage today. Is one basking light with a 60 watt bulb and one uvb-10 18 inch tube light enough for the cage. The temp at the top branch is at 85 degrees.
I would get a 24 inch Reptisun 5.0 tube for that size enclosure. The 60 watt should be ok. What kind of cham do you have and how old?
You might also think about a dual flourescent fixture and putting a 6500K bulb for the plants along side the reptisun. It really helps keep the enclosure bright and keeps your plants alive much longer. Only Pothos will thrive without the extra light,at least thats my experience.
