What part of the arm...most limbs heal by themselves and although the iguana may be slightly deformed for life they do fine ...as long as the proper diet and lighting is provided.
LIGHTING: You must provide a UVB specific lamp so the iguana can process the calcium in the diet to make bones strong.....no UVB lamp = weak and broken bones and deformities. Thats why they bask in the sun ...to get the UVB rays and process the calcium. Look up the disease called Metabolic Bone disease in reptile (MBD)
Go to the Green Iguana society to learn so much more ...care ...diet ... lighting.
Go to Mega Ray (Reptile UV) and order a proper lamp....100 watt SB (self ballast ) 120 volt or get a ZOO MED POWERSUN 100 watt -160 watt.
If your iguana already has signs of MBD they can be reversed with the proper diet and lighting. Don't become another statistic...research info about the proper care......and try to arrange some out door time in the sun ...early morning or late afternoon....20 minutes in the sun is equal to about 8 hrs under a man made lamp, so I have been told.
Because the switches have electronics in them the ground wire may be very important to give it a full 120 volts to be able to run. Also double check your lighting, these dimmers are likely for incondescent lighting only (light bulbs). A compact fluorescent or some other lighting may blow the switches. If your lights are led they may not have sufficient resistance so that the dimmer knows that you have any lighting at all. Fluorescent lighting has to high a capacitive reactance and or inductive reactance. Halogen or other lights may cause troubles too. Check the directions on your switches to see if they were for incondescent only or for fluorescent only etc. Also modern bulbs don't seem to screw far enough into the sockets because of their fat necks that bottom too soon. You may have to turn off the power then put your finger inside to bend the bottom contact up enough to touch the bulbs.

That switch says on it that it is for fluorescent lights only. I don't know if you can use compact fluorescent bulbs on that system, perhaps verify if you can or not. The switch has electronics in it and may need that ground wire to get 120 volts to operate. If you have incondescent light bulbs return and get the correct dimmer.
pythons require a daytime temperature ranging from 80-85F and a basking spot of
90F. These temperatures can be slightly
decreased at night to around 74F. I
would recommend buying an under tank heating pad as well as an incandescent
bulb for the basking area. You will need
to use a minimum of two thermostats to help monitor the tanks temperature.
belly toads should not be exposed to too much UVB light. The best way to control this is to use a fluorescent
reptile lamp specifically designed for frog habitats that emit 3-6% UVB
light. This bulb will need to be
replaced every 6 months.
