Installing Light Fixtures 

If you ordered light fixtures with your enclosure or sourced them elsewhere, all enclosures come ready to have lights added. Please note unless your ordered lights from us during the customization process, the enclosure does not come standard with lights. Light fixtures can be installed anywhere on the top for added customization using wood screws from your local hardware store. We recommend installing all lights before completing the assembly as it's easiest to do with the top of the enclosure laying on a flat surface with the inside facing up.

Installing a T5 UVB Fixture & Arcadia JungleDawn LED Bar

Our enclosures come ready to add T5 UVB fixtures and/or an Arcadia JungleDawn LED Bar with a couple of screws. When you purchase these items directly from us, we include all of the necessary mounting hardware. When you purchase from other retailers they come with the brackets, you'll need to supply your own screws. We recommend installing all lights and radiant heat panels before completing the assembly as it's easiest to do with the top of the enclosure laying on a flat surface with the inside facing up.

KAGES TROUBLESHOOTING

My hot side is too cold and my cool side is too warm, what can I do? 

My first question is, how are you measuring your temperatures? You should be measuring the basking area surface temperature, the ground temperature on the cool side as well as the air temperature on both sides. This will help give you a better idea of what needs to be adjusted. 

There are a couple of options: 

  • Raise your basking height and decrease your basking bulb. 
  • The other option is to increase the basking bulb wattage and add a fan to the vents on the hot side to increase air movement. >>FANS HERE<<
