So I am planning on purchasing a Madagascar Giant Day Gecko and I am wondering what lights work best. I have a spare Double Dome that a friend gave me but I know that those aren't too good because they don't allow for full spectrum UVB. So what should I use? Should I use the linear UVB light or Is the dome fine? Also what heat bulb works best I know there basking spot has to be in the 90s. I have a 60 watt light or should I go higher.

As far as I know (I have a few smaller day geckos, but not a Giant), many people use tube fluorescents for the UV and smaller halogen or xenon puck lights for basking.
