Default Exo Terra 50w basking light for beardie

Hi there, im picking up my 8 month old beardie tomo and just want to make sure i have got everything i need, im pretty sure im ok but think i need to get a uvb light attached, i only have the exo terra 50 basking light and presume this will not emit the uvb rays that are needed, any advice please, i want to make sure everything just right for her, oh and if needed do i have to get a strip one or can i get one with bulb and holder etc

thanks in advance

Agreed! i had mine running 3 days before i got my first beardie, wanted to check everything was working and i was getting my temp and humidity right and making sure it stayed constant throughout the day! might seem a bit over the top but i think it definitely played a role in helping my beardie settle in! now she's very active and as happy as larry in her little set up!!!
