 What lights!!??

So like i mentioned in my previous post i am very new to the crested gecko side of the site and the crested gecko itself. I have not purchased one yet because i am doing thourough research and my tank is in the process of being thouroughly cleaned. I currently have the lights needed for a green anole. I know cresties do not need uvb so ill just put that aside and my current basking bulb is way to intense. In order to allow light in the tank and obtain room temperature what kind of light bulb should i use?? Again thanks in advance for any replies!

I personally use no lighting for my crestie since they don’t need it.

I did some research and found that out but i would like to have some lighting that will not really raise the temperature but will allow enough light in to view them during the day. My tank is on a bookshelf type thing in my room and is surrounded by walls on all sides but the front so it is really dark in there even during the day so i want a light that can help me see them during the day. Will a day blue incondescent bulb work?

I know this is a bit old, but I use this light for aesthetics only on my crested gecko cages...

It’s the Rio Mini Sun LED.
