 Bulb Placement question

Hi, everyone!

I am about to set up a terrarium for an anole for the first time. The terrarium came with a hood that holds a bulb, and I bought a dome for another bulb. Is it correct that I am supposed to put the incandescent bulb in the dome for basking, and the UVB bulb in the hood? Just want to make sure that I get the set up right.

Thanks!

I’m not sure how your lid looks, but there should be mesh or screen between the anoles and the UV light as it reflects a large amount of the rays. The incan bulb in the dome is perfect, that’ll reflect the heat downward to their basking area and help warm the tank. Good luck!

Yes, the hood sits on top of the screen lid. Thanks! I haven’t tried to see if dome will even fit sitting next to the hood, but hopefully it will, or i may have to get one of those stands to hang it on over the terrarium. I still haven’t set it all up yet. I have been pretty busy, but hopefully i will get around to it tonight or tomorrow!
