I recently switched to this bulb for my turtle tank. Unfortunately it only lasted for a week , very disappointed.
this bulb only lasted 3 mounths and was only used a few hours a day
Product inconsistent. I just had to change one again after only 2 weeks, when the prior bulb lasted for months.
The first bulb that I got looked good but it didn't turn on with my dome so I reached out to customer service and they replied so nice and quickly, they sent a replacement in no time and the new bulb that arrived works perfectly. Definitely reccomend for the price at chewy and not at the pet store def. worth the wait
I like to keep a spare bulb in case one goes out, so it is hard to say how long ago I bought this bulb, I do know that I didn’t order it threw chewy. Having read other reviews I felt it necessary to write one as I’ve had the same experience. My last bulb a zoo med uvb 10 (which seemed to last forever) finally gave out and I put this brand new bulb in and nothing. I tried it in other fixtures just to make sure the fixture didn’t go bad. That isn’t good quality control by exoterra if you ask me since other people have had the same issue.
I purchased this lightbulb for my daughter’s turtle. According to the measurements and wattage, it should have worked just fine with the lamp fixture we purchased, but the bulb head was too long (wasn’t flush). Fortunately, we were able to take advantage of the clip to remedy that situation. She used it a couple hours a day in addition to taking the turtle outside. It stopped working within a week or two (maybe 14-20 hours of total run time).
This bulb works fine. I bought the 26-w bulb for my turtle's basking area. The way my tank is set up, there's nowhere to clip the lamps on, so they have to sit on a wire lid above the basking area. This bulb is so long, it sticks out a couple inches from the 5.5 inch Fluker's clamp lamp. I ordered the 8.5 inch lamp because it said it could house a bulb that was longer than this one. Even with the larger lamp, this bulb still sticks out almost an inch from the bottom. It's been difficult to find an affordable lamp that will fit this bulb.
My two female red sliders love it. They are now in a set up in my garage. Their winter home. The are large adults.
Light was just right. Very quick with delivery. Will order again
it was great until it started flickering one morning and went out not long after i noticed it
