Listen--if These are DHl's then the ground temps are usually around 120-140 defgres, obviously they don't sit in that all day, but in order to get these guys up to snuff, the ambient air temps be around 90 degrees. If you have one bulb in that big of a cage its not enough, I guarantee it. The ambient temps are pretty important. I am glad the female is doing well, but I suggest you check that out. Other than that you should be good...... In a 50 gallon breeder tank, I usually have a 160 watt UVB bulb and right next to it a Basking bulb 150 watt usually halogen, which puts out white light and good heat.... Just a suggestion, your fluorescent bulbs do not put out heat. Actually for hls I like the 10.0 Zoomed bulbs for UVB set at 12 to 14 " off the substrate and then two 150 watt halogen bulbs side by side, I usually by the ones from tractor supply for $8.00 for two. They seem to work well.
