Trying to get my snake enclosure set up, bought this light for it. Came only with the light fixture, no bulb included. It does say that on the box, but no where in the description online does it say “bulb not included”. Now I have to go out and find a bulb that fits, because I’m not paying for shipping on just a bulb
This fixture is so hot you can't touch it! I'm using the bulb suggested by the manufacturer. This is a horrible fire hazard!
The low profile of this light is awesome. I had the really bulky ceramic one and this one is sooo much better!
I wanted a low profile heat lamp that would fit within the raised lid on my 29 gallon anole terrarium, while not being seen. My lid has about 4" of clearance inside, this lamp falls well within that even when caged. (The lid has a glass and screen top, open on the bottom, so the cage prevents direct access to the lamp and bulb.) I use it with a 25W mini halogen, and it heats the basking and ambient temps to within specs.
This fixture requires PIN type bulbs, NOT the standard screw in. I try to be responsible, I read the description, reviews, and looked at all the photos. I don’t like doing returns (even though Chewy is awesome about it, which is why I shop here). And I could not tell how the bulbs went in or what type of socket they needed. I put off ordering the light fixture and tossed back and forth between this and the double or just getting a led for months. Finally broke down and ordered this one and what my best guess as to a bulb for it. In my application I am wanting to add an appropriate light to add plants and make my snake enclosure naturally planted and augment the view. I also have to deal with a small space as to not melt the top plastic supports on the top of my exoterra and a short height because of the bookshelf like thing I placed the tank in. So it’s totally fluff and not required for animal health. Honestly I can NOT test light fixture as I bought the wrong bulb. It’s easy to see in my photos what is NOT stated clearly. Chewy refunded the bulb that doesn’t fit, but it’s not going to help light my tank unless I either pay shipping or wait until I put a larger order together. So please see my photos before buying bulbs for this light fixture. I’ll update review after I can try it out. I’m a bit miffed as it almost seems like the important information was left off the product photos. Below are 2 views that are important in the decision making process IMO.
This fixture can be used with Zilla's 25W or 50W Halogen bulbs for heat or you can use Zilla's mini UVB bulbs. It comes with hardware to attach to the top screen of your habitat to keep it safe and secure. I always worry less when I can keep my lights locked into place so they can't be accidentally knocked down and become a fire risk. I use this fixture with a mini tropical UVB light for my day gecko.
I really like the Zilla Low Profile Reptile Terrarium Lamp Fixture Single. I received it very quickly. It’s made of high quality materials, but was still very inexpensive. My 16 year old son was able to set it up very easily. It works great!! I received cashback for this item as part of a cashback program.
