Overwhelmed by lightning information. [R]

After weeks of reading about acceptable lighting for chameleons and hibiscus, hibiscuses?, hibisci ? Biscotti?.... mmmm.I am overwhelmed with all the information. So many different opinions! I am completely convinced that my local pet shop wants me to kill my chameleon right off the bat. The information they give me is almost the opposite from what I read everywhere else. I want to keep a hibiscus as my live plant but Im worried about the light neccessary for the hibiscus might be too bright, the wrong color, within the wrong spectrum or the wrong flavor. I need someone with some experience to point at the lights that I need and say " yep, those are the ones that you need....dumbass."
My cage is an exo terra screen 24x18x36 that sits approximately 12' across from a set of two 36" windows that provide a decent amount of sunlight.

The 10.0 is for dessert animals like the beardies. Its too intense for the chams. Bigger isnt always better. The 5.0 t8 is the way to go. This one and its good fornthe hibiscus. Your cham will enjoy eating it also. Haha

Just a regular light bulb for heat.

My friend can’t take care of his 3-4 month old (that’s what I’m told) chameleon anymore and has passed it down to me and by looking at the sub here I can already tell there’s some work to do on his caging but I’ll say what his temps are more in the comments pointers are welcome [R]

Go light on the spinach, this is a good place to start http://www.greenigsociety.org/foodchart.htm. I keep a list of foods in my phone for shopping cause my memory is terrible. Its not a big deal if they miss a day of eating, just don't make it a habit. You need the correct kind of UV lamp iguana needs are different than a lot of other reptiles. https://www.amazon.com/ReptiSun-5-0-UVB-Fluorescent-Bulb/dp/B000255OS6/ref=pdnavhcsbiat1?encoding=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=4602TGDXDE514QDE3HBK with https://www.amazon.com/GE-18-Inch-Fluorescent-Fixture-16466/dp/B000HJ75PW/ref=pdnavhcsbiat2?encoding=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=4602TGDXDE514QDE3HBK was the cheapest I found, change them about once a year. If you get this lamp remove the clear plastic covering the light. I use blended berry tums as a calcium supplement (vet recommended) no phosphorus, vit A and D3, this is what you want for iguanas. collared greens and dandelion greens are great staples so if you in an area where gardening is easy and have a yard order some seeds, they are cheap and dandelions take very little care. Organic soils and not insecticide or chemicals. It will help with money. If and when you need a vet you might have trouble finding a reptile vet (or exotics vet). This site is wonderful for health issues, http://www.anapsid.org/, this way you go to the vet having a good idea of what is going on already. Its a lot of information but once you have it down its not hard.

Second day Chameleon owner [R]

2 years, 11 months agoMay 22, 2017

Yo i have some images of my Chameleon and his crib. I'm sure I will not be using the dripper any more. His/her home is really barren and I am going to get him some more things to climb. Also I do not know how to keep his house at proper temp and Humidity.

Also my chameleon has a little bump on both oh it's back feet.


P.S I want to get another lamp to replace the one I have. I want the light bulbs to be apart.

Sorry I wasn't very clear. You need to get a T8 bulb that specifically is designed to provide UVB. This is the exact one you should get. Get the 18" one and order it asap. It is available through amazon prime so it should come quickly.

UVB light bar search. [R]

Will someone please post a link to the appropriate UVB light bar set up? I had found it here but can't seem to now. I believe it was a T5 but don't want to mess it up

If you didn't know:

T8 have less "burn in time"

Don't get the 10.0 bulbs

New Cham not eating anymore/ haven't seen her drink / Closes and itches eye. She is active, but just watches food. Won't eat veges. Only ever ate Super worms. Hasn't eaten at all today. Had her for 4 days. [R]

Almost any reptile store will carry them. There's two types the T5 and the T8 The T8's are superior. The T5's contain the same formula inside their tubes as the compact lights and have the same basic issues.

The T8's are the gold standard -tried and true.

Amazon has them as well as other online retailers

The fixtures are standard. Any hardware store will have overhead lights (shop lights) that can be used. you don't need anything specific as the connections are standard.

The link I provided under the "frequently bought together" has a hood that will work just fine. (remove the plastic cover over the tube as both glass and plastic will block 100% of UV light and you'll be good)

This will give uniform coverage across the top of the habitat vs a blinding hot spot.

My chams right eye is usually closed and looks "deflated". No discharge of any kind. Should I be worried or could it be part of shedding? [R]

Compact doesn't sound good as I've heard they can cause eye problems with chameleons.. Where did you get it from?

I've always been told to use this type of bulb. You want it to be a 5.0 vs 10.0

Is this veiled chameleon ok? (Club foot) [R]

Alright so the first thing is you should take the light fixture back if possible.... You want to have a UVB bulb like this because the one you have can cause serious eye damage to your cham. If you can, take some pictures of his setup so we can help further.
