Sounds good.Yeah..I've never been a fan of the CHEs...even for my desert dwelling repies. They're just too hot and a fire risk.
I have another dome on order. So I'll get a white light for heat in the next day or two. Basking never goes over 76 as it is now. So I'll keep the same wattage as the heat bulb I currently have.
Does higher UVB stunt growth?
Yes, it can slow growth. I can not find the most recent thread showing this with a clutch the breeder had but it has been tested with clutch mates having all the same setups just different UVI with Panthers as well as the most recent thread which was a different species. It was done in the last week so you may be able to find it easily. Babies kept at a higher UVI have a much slower growth rate compared to their clutch mates that are kept at the recommended 3 UVI levels
