Just picked up a beautiful cb male at the TARAS show this weekend. He's 1month old and a real cutie!

I have a 2.5 yr old Dumeril's Boa, so I have some experience with lights/heat etc, but this is my first non-snake reptile. I've cruised the forums a bit, and reviewed some caresheets, but still have a few q's:

1) Does it matter if my lamp hoods are porcelain or metal (as from hardware store)?

2) The "supply" table at the show gave me Repti-glo 10.0 bulbs.... are these ok? I've read a lot of people use 5.0's -should I switch? What's the difference?

3) I was also given a 50w infared bulb... should it be hotter, and is infared ok? His basking area is around 90F, so I'm hoping it will be ok.

4) He's in a 10gallon tank at the moment, and I purchased a larger all-screen area for him for 1month from now. Now I've read that these mesh cages don't let enough uvb through -thoughts?


Thanks everyone -I'm excited to be part of the veiled cham community!
