Unless your temperatures drop below 70 at night, I don't think you need a light. I dont use one at night.So do I need a heat device for when the lights are off? I know it's a stupid question but I think there is no such thing as a stupid question, just trying to make the best environment my my Cham.
Thanks for the help.I keep veileds. They are awesome chameleons! If you get a young one you want need a very high watt bulb to start with for basking. Depending on the age, I'd start with a 25 or maybe 40 watt bulb max. I'm attaching my blog for new keeper below. It will tell you everything you will need for your cham, give you links to pictures and show you where you can buy each item.
