well i picked up 2 yellow throat plated lizards today, i was origally just going to get one, but the store offered me both for $50.

so i got a few questions now, i got them in a temp cage till i can build their permant cage, i know their basic needs, but not the full details, like things they prefer. and i can't seem to find any good caresheets

so if you don't mind, heres my q's

#1-im planning on building their cage, and was thinking a 4x4ft floor space, would this be big enough

#2-whats the best substrate for them.

#3-what materials make the best humid hide for them

#4, i know they eat a variety of things, how often should what be given.

#5-how stong of uv lighting should i get, 5.0 or 8.0 seem to be the main choices.

#6-how hot should the hot end be, and how cool should the cool end be.

#7- i know they can swim, so would it be fine to put a pool in their cage, say 6inch deep.

and lastly for now

#8- do their nails need to be trimmed like some of the other larger lizards?

thanx for any and all help.
