New cham owner jitters!

Everyone on here is awesome! Next question than because the guys at the pet store have no idea what there talking about apparently no longer asking questions there haha . So the t5 fixture I bought one to span the length of the enclosure so 36in this is the best option correct ? been using cham academy alot and the say ideally to use an arcadia 12% at 6 inches above the enclosure or would you recommend the 6% right on the screen ?
Honestly, I would do the 12% in the raised fixture because I don’t like the idea of risking any burns if my chameleon decides to climb the screen on the ceiling, which has happened when a fly got in my room and was attracted to the light. Just make sure to give the full 12” distance, unless you have a montane maybe 10” would be fine. If you have a multibulb fixture the distance will be 7” ☺️
