    I am wanting to build a enclosure for our bearded dragon but I'm stuck on the lights.

    Do the lights have to be on the top facing down or can you put them at a angle? If I mount then above I will need another 12" above the tank. I would like to build a rack system so I could stack 2 tanks on top of each other and with the lights on top that makes it a little harder.

    I think it would be better if they are facing down so that the light and heat is facing directly at the bottom/basking shelf. If it is at an angle the bearded dragon wouldn't be able to get all the heat from the lights......At least I think so....
