Default beardie advice

so, i was planning on getting a blue tongue skink, but because of their rarity this time of year, may go for a beardie insteads as i have seen a few good looking alert babies in my local rep and aqaurian shop.

cute little things they are!

so my Q's are:

1) will a 10.0 uv bulb be ok? i know it is fine for a skink which also resides in australia, but just making sure.

2) can they be housed on coconut fibre?
(p.s. i know risk of impaction but i am not going to be feeding inside the viv anyway)

3) whats temps will needed? i have a 4ft by 2ft by 2ft viv so would i need a 100w or 120w bullb. i have a 60w bulb but doesnt seem to get up in temps.

thank you!
