Default New viv set up with pics

This is my new vivarium set up that will be housing a bearded dragon. I am currnetly in the process of fine tuning the temps, once i am happy with those then ill tidy the wires. I am aiming for 41C basking spot 32C hot side ambiant and 80C cool side ambiant.



I have attached my uv light with a chain so I can lower it if its too high up.



I have a java branch that is currently being soaked in a bleech solution so thats not in the vivarium at the moment. Just wondering if you guys think this is ok or if anything needs to be changed.

I might be wrong but the basking light looks bit too close to the side other than that it's nice

The lamp holder is one of those arcadia ones that has 2 screw hold on the side so I'm not really sure how I could move it further away from the side.

beat me to it yeah that water dish is massive, it could put the humidty through the roof and that can cause fatal problems for your dragons.
and yeah i would say the heat light is quite close too.

With the heat lamp I am gonna find a piece of wood approx 1 ich thick and screw the fitting to it, that will pull it away from from the side more. Do you think this will be enough as its currently about an inch away from the side wall?

With that water dish that was the only size that they had and from what i have seen bearded dragons do sometimes like to sit it their water bowls for a bit, or am I wrong about this and maybe get a exo terra 1 in medium?

Glad I posted the pics now because you guys have already helped me and i wanna make sure I have everything right before i bring a bearded dragon home.

Ye a nice chunky piece of wood would do the job it should be really 1/4 away from end though
