    usually a Exo Terra or Reptile One 13W for a pygmy (sometimes a 26W if you have a big enclosure) just make sure it is 10UVB (desert UVB), be wary of cheap globes as cheap usually means inferior product.
    Don't forget to replace them every 6 months or so as the UV degrades, just because the light is on doesn't mean it is supplying sufficient UV for your dragon

    is this too powerful for a 60 x 40cm tank?
