Default lamps for my GWD terra

My green water dragon terrarium (going to house 2 dragons) is 1meter x 1meter x 0.5meter (3.2ft x 3.2ft x 1.6ft)

What kind of lamps and of what wattage should they be?


Thanks

Hi - unfortunately that viv is WAY too small for two dragons (or even for one!)

My single female is going into a 5ft x 4ft x 2ft viv. This will be heated by a 250w ceramic bulb. Hope that helps!

Is it really too small for 1 or would it be somewhat doable?

IMO its really really really too small for one. Many water dragons actually reach 3ft long themselves. It would be like you living in a room JUST big enough for you to stand up in, lie down in, and turn around in - essentially coffin sized..

Water dragons will bash their face on the glass and get really stressed if their environment if its too small. Sorry
