    Uvb--get a linear bulb for him--the tightly wooven screen and that style of bulb barely allow them to get any uvb.

    (I just switched as well after one of the chain pet stores sold me a very similiar set up and our Cham kept getting sick.)

    The plants will need a plant light also--i just asked a bunch of ?s myself about these as well and was told the Jungledawn megaspot bulb was excellent, but pricey, but that a 5500k-6500k would be a great linear ho bulb for the plants to flourish and keep my lil guy healthy and happy.

    Good luck, it's a very quick leaning curve unfortunately, but I cannot imagine a better spot to be in for that honestly. I just disregard anything the chain stores tell me now....really. Everything is marked up, none of the animals are housed properly at our particular Petco chain, and they had me so misinformed, I feel lucky my lil guy is still active and recovering from it all.

    It would be a good idea to get a fecal test done on your new little guy, esp if you have other lizards about the house to make sure he is parasite free. Not at the pet store you got him from, they don't typically see an exotic vet at all, at least at ours their "health warranty" means they'll give you a new one when they don't treat the sick one -_-.

    Wait so your chameleon died and you went ahead and got a female parsons?.... that's a gigantic leap

    Hopefully you're ready for that commitment. Good luck

    I will be taking her to the vet ASAP. I got her from a breeder so she should be good till then. To be honest I now have two Panthers and a Parson's.

    Did you get her from Craig? If so I'm not worried because he probably talked you through everything. They benefit from large enclosures, tons of misting, and a large variety of feeders.

    The male had a little mouth rot but he is now on .5 Baytnl once a day. He lost a little of his lip but is doing much better.
