"moving on and off" is the key. I have seen set ups where iguanas are spending most of their time under the heat lamp..... just getting off once in a while to feed. The hot spot should be hot enough so that they should heat up relatively quickly and then they would do what they do naturally in nature, either rest in shade, feed or/and explore. There should be balance between basking and other activities. If they are spending more than half (not derived scientifically....just a number i feel is right) their time under the basking lamp, I would raise the temperature of the hot spot.
