    How about joining Facebook's excellent Reptile Lighting group for their UVB recs in your situation? Admin Dr. Fran Baines has all the tools for measuring UV Index including a Solarmeter 6.5R. She takes each lizard under her wings. There are many variables that include enclosure height and whether your UVB tube needs a reflector or not in the fixture.

    It would be quite helpful if you let us know what Dr. Baines says.

    Even when using appropriate UVB, Dr. Baines recommends using a D3 calcium supplement 1-2x per month.

    My 15 gallons measure 24" long x 12.75" wide x 12.75" tall.

    Here's an excellent feeding and supplementing schedule for an 18 month old leo.
    Thank you so much for all of your help, I'll surely join the group! I really just want what's best for my little girl, no matter the cost. I wasn't sure if I seemed like an overly concerned mom for thinking she has MBD but I just wanted to catch it early in case she did. I'll keep you updated! (:

    You're very welcome.

    All the plain calcium Tenga is getting (2x per week + a bowl in her enclosure) could certainly be contributing to any beginning MBD we suspect.
