    Looks good! If it was my tank. I would try to move the log up closer to your foliage to allow you to move the water dish more over to the cooler side. I would put the DHP close to overtop of your warm dry hide. In the bottom left quadrant of the picture. With the probe controlling the temp of the DHP just outside of the heat zone coming down from the lamp. Monitor air and ground temps closely for the next little while and make adjustments as needed.

    Ok moved the log over under the foliage and moved the water dish now to order the DHP and thermostat ( the thermostat might take awhile to get here because of amazons restrictions on non essential item delivery).

    Very nice! I really like your setup. Truth be told, I'm a bit envious!

    Have you ordered the 80 watt DHP since Iggy has a large enclosure now?

    from what i've heard since its a 36x18x12 50 watt would be sufficient i was going to order it tomorrow but i will need a thermostat with it and that could take a bit with amazon.

    What size fixture do you have for your 50 watt DHP?

    Please link it.

    the only dome that will really fit where i need it would be a 5.5 inch which i was going to get from reptile basics when i ordered the DHP.

    This is the dome I have:
    Zilla Premium Reflector Dome, Black 8.5" https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B005OCWP1Q/..._qisOEb9WCBA78

    But my understanding is that you could use different size domes with the DHP bulb.

    The mesh sections on top of the 36x18x12 tank i have are only 7.5 inches in width so my dome choices are kinda limited.
