I'm slowly, ever so slowly figuring things out. I have two lights. I need to have them both on in the day, and then turn them off at night when I want him to sleep. The red one generates heat. The other one generates UV rays, which is a clear one. I don't have a box for the red one, but I know that it increased the temp by 10 degrees last night, which was way too hot. This morning, I turned them on, next to each other, above the therm and it's not going above 80 despite that that it's 77 in my room. After I turned them on I got some coffee and a donut and the next thing I know my friend's telling me to check on my iguana, because he was hanging upside down on his cage. And surely enough, he was. So I turned the bulbs around in order, realizing that I had the red bulb further away and that it also still wasn't hot enough. I'm going to keep an eye on it and take him outside more often. I've been hesitant to do that in fear that he'll run away. I'm going to try to give him a bath. Should I was it out before I do that? I know I should afterwards. What should I use to wash it out? Just a dilute of bleach?
