Hi
Quick question can a heat emitter replace a basking light and infra red night light?

Hi
When I had my bearded dragon I had a basking light and a heat emitter. I think you need the basking light because the dragon needs light.
Just my 2c and i might be wrong

Yes it can replace as basking light/infrared.

Some guys prefer using heat emmiters, my experience with them is that they last much longer than basking lights/infrared.

They need ultraviolet light (UV). The basking lamp is just there to provide heat.
