    Question Enclosure Help (Newbie)

    Hey guys, I'm wanting to get my first beardie (central bearded dragon to be specific) and as I'm doing research, I've run into a small road block. I don't know if the enclosure I picked out is good for a beardie, I know it's a good size but the specific features have me questioning whether It's viable. The vivarium is ---> here <--- and the only thing that has got me questioning whether I should buy it or not is the fact that there are 2 fixed holes for lights. Is this standard? If so, how should I arrange the lighting and UVB bulb? Or should I look else where. Any pointers are welcomed!

    Thanks for your time, whoever reads this

    That looks like a mesh top, so not so good. And the lights are at opposite ends, also not good.You want a wooden enclosure to keep in heat,if you need some contacts I can point you in the right direction for custom made enclosures. Best not to buy glass enclosures as they don't hold the heat well.
    So for a central beardie you need a 120x60x60cm with both lights near 1 end or a heat lamp at 1 end and a flouro UVB tube in the centre

    Thanks so much, yeah it would be great if you could give me some pointers. Though I might just try building it on my own. Thanks again and have a great evening

    I customised an old box tv cabinet. The other dragon is in a homemade enclosure that he came with. Simply made but does the job.
