The substrate .should be solid, no sand, desert blend, or bark.
Loghting is very important as it aids with appetite, activity and ober all health. IVB should be a 10% UVB light. The UVB needs to be replaced every 6 months.The UVB works with the calcium supplement to prevent metabolic bone disease. It metabolizes the calcalcium into D3 in the body.
You do need a Full Spectrum Basking light. This aids in digestion. Tje red light can cause thermal burms and should not be used inless the yemps drop below 78 at night.
You need to ise the twp recommended lights 12 -14 hours a day.

I l.ooked at the leg and the upper leg is very swillen. This can be due to an infection, gout in the elbow joint, a sprain or break. I suggest a Herp Vet bisit to have the leg seen and an X-ray if needed. The Vet can give medication to reduce the swekking as well as other treatments.
I suggest that you give a warm soak in a shallow basin for 15-20 mins 3 days a week.
Please reply to discuss this information. I I have addressed all your concerns, please take a moment to rate my service Positive.
The basking light give heat. Flukers make basking lifgr as Zoomed. They have 75 watt as well as 100 watt.
The temps in the tank should be 105-119 in the basking area that is under the basking bulb.
The Ambient temp in the middle of the yank which is the air temop mid 90s
Cool area the floor of the tank mid 80s
The basking light should effectively cate for these temps in the day time. The basking light is full spectrum whire light. he infra red bulb can cause theremal burns to your dragon. Ise at night only if the temps go below 78 at night.
The basin can be a small Runnetmade bin and you can get them in Walmart and Target.
