Per the lighting. Red lights are a big no no they can harm their eyes. Use a regular incandescent household bulb. 60 watt should get you the 78-80 basking temp for your female. Also lighting should come from the top of the cage for proper basking and to ensure they can not get too close and get a thermal burn.
