    Uvb lighting. It goes by zones. Ferguson zones 1 threw 4. Zone 1 is were our littel ones fall. They need uvi of .4 to .6 no higher then .6 to 1.4. The solormeter 6.5 measures in uvi.
    I spoke to arcidia. what would be fit for my two in closers of the 4feet by 24 and 4 by 20. They pointed me in direction of there t5 22inch 6% uvb d3 reptile lamp in 24inch figure that fits t5. T5 or just smaller and new. Half seize of t8.
    Right now I turn it on just hour in evening, about 530. It took him bit get use to it. It's installed at 12inches high. Do I know if he's getting proper amount, meaning zone 1. No I do knot but real soon I should know exactly were to set it , with a solormeter6.5. I need email arcida again, touch on how long keep it running. I asked how's 15 mints in morning and 15 mints in evening, they said fine. I need do some more checking be satisfied on that. That's about all I know. Provide plenty of shelter for them, witch I already have. I did read knot needing blast them all day. Maybe small amount goes long way. I'm open to suggestions myself. Maybe this meter shed some light on this.

    I was trying to determine the best bulb for this on the warm side of the enclosure because she sometimes climbs to the top floor of the house and the ambient temperature there is around 83 degrees. I was reading that 88-90 is ideal so I was trying to find something with a wattage low enough to not be an issue. Would this work? https://www.amazon.com/dp/B074M7VF7N..._6pFjAbR5RBXDB
    You're most welcome, Rainy! You're definitely resourceful! The cotton makeup pads sound like a good idea for keeping the humid hide humid.

    That video really helps. Your leo is definitely ready for this schedule, even if she's younger than 18 months old.

    Weekly Schedule 126 for Leopard Geckos 18 months old +
    Adapted for your leo

    Crickets or dubia >> Monday - lightly dusted with Zoo Med ReptiVite multivitamins with D3
    Crickets or dubia >> Thursday - lightly dusted with Zoo Med Repti Calcium without D3
    Mealworms >> Saturday - no dusting

    Future weeks:
    Continue on since all weeks are identical. . . . . .
    Your leo is healthy! There is no need for any plain calcium in the enclosure 24/7. Zoo Med supplements are excellent! They provide a good dose of precipitated calcium carbonate with each dusting. In fact, too much calcium in the digestive tract can impair absorption of key nutrients.

    • I recommend an ~8 ounce water dish. That helps with ambient humidity too. Leos are forgiving. 40-60% RH is a good range!
    • I recommend 88-92*F ground temp under the warm dry hide. The thermal pad should be controlled by a thermostat set @ 91*.
    • The wattage of a CHE is trial and error. The wattage highly depends upon ambient room temperatures.

    Thermal pad ~ Please tell me more. In wooden and melamine enclosures it's important to have the pad elevated above the floor/ground to ventilate it underneath. I have examples.

    Would a low wattage incandescent bulb support those plants?

    I would strongly advise against feeding you're Leo anything but insects! They're stomachs are meant to process small insects not huge pinkies!
