Setting Up a Cage

PetSmart Employees Bearded Dragon setup - YouTube

He is in a 75 gallon (48x18x18) tank. The two rocks in there were bleached and baked before being put in the tank. The sand is about 50 or 60 pounds of ReptiSand and he has been on it since he was 10 inches long (now he is 17 inches long and growing) he's going to be a monster.

The daytime basking bulb is an 150W Exo-Terra intense basking spot. The nighttime bulb is a 75w dark purple bulb also made by Exo0Terra

He NOW has a single 48" reflector dome with a 10.0 UVB flourescent bulb in it, this is not shown in the video.

I built the stand for his tank myself, and all of his lights are on timers

If you don't like the sand, I don't care. they come from Australia and sand is everywhere, and if you disagree, read a book or two like i did

Any questions feel free to ask!
