    I just got a baby bearded dragon I have him in an 11 gallon tank for the moment. And his lights at the top of the cage. The problem with this is everytime I got to open his cage I have to take the lights off of the cage and it has become a pain. Can anyone tell a cheap inexpensive way to suspend or elevaute the lights so I can go in and out his tank without having to go in his cage without all the hassle. Thank you

    Thats a hard question! If it an aquarium, then you will have to remove the top to get into the tank. I use a front closing enclosure so I don't have to worry about getting in from the top. They do make clamp lamps that clamp on the edge of a tank, and they also make stands for the clamp lamps to attach to and hover over a tank. Here is another solution;

    The 11 gallon tank is definitely too small to get a proper heat gradient.
    Here is a caresheet on Bearded dragons, hope it gives you some information that you need. If you have any questions, ask away.

    It's too much trouble to lift a light up and move it?

    That was my thought! It's not like you are going into the tank a million times a day. It should really just be twice a day, to feed and clean.

    And you need a bigger tank. 10 gallons is too small for even a hatchling. Just go out and buy an adult tank now.
