• Best Leopard Gecko Lighting Setups

    Incandescent heat lamp as daylight. T5 or T8 5-6% UVBbulb (2-3% for albinos). Ceramic bulb for nighttime heating, or aheating pad if your tank is too small. Red, blue, or black nightlight, which should be for a couple of hours while you wantto watch your geckos (optional).


  • This means in the summer they should have 14 hours oflight, followed by 10 hours of darkness, and in winter theyneed 12 hours of light and 12 hours of darkness.Since leopard geckos are nocturnal, they should not beexposed to bright white lights or UVlights.

    Likewise, can I use a regular light bulb for my leopard gecko? Normal bulbs can be used as Fizz has saidbut leos need to be heated 24/7 and a light emitting heatbulb cannot be left on at night time. You would be better ofwith a ceramic if you have a wooden viv or a heat mat if it isglass which can be placed under the tank for safetyreasons.
