Zilla’s Fixture Low Profile Single G9 Reptile Terrarium Lamp Fixture is great way to save energy while providing your scaly sidekick with all the light and warmth he needs. Compared to other fixtures, this one is more compact and therefore takes up less space! It also uses Zilla MiniUVB bulbs or Zilla Mini Halogen bulbs (sold separately) that provide a powerful source of energy-saving heat and light.
The compact design takes up less space than standard domes.
Holds mini UVB bulbs and mini halogen bulbs.
Delivers your pet’s terrarium uniform heat and light.
Comes with a spring clip that helps keep it in place on the screen.
The socket is made from ceramic to help it withstand heat.
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.

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.… more
Great low profile fixture!

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.
Great Quality and Easy Setup!!

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.
Great shape fixture
on Mar 18, 2021
We got this lighting fixture for our bearded dragons tank. We have an old fixture that I wanted to replace and this looked like a good one. It is very sturdy and it has more of an oval shape which I like better than the the full round ones. My favorite part was the little springs it comes with to keep stabilized on the top of the tank and avoids it from shifting or falling over.

Great light. Puts out a good amount of heat. Heats up a rock nicely for a basking rock. I like the low profile because it fits so many places.

So many heat and light fixtures are large and bulky, and put limitations on habitat design. We were thrilled to discover Zilla's bulbs and fixtures to be able to design our habitat in a way we wanted while still ensuring that our hedgehog stayed warm and cozy. These fixtures are compatible with the Zilla CHE bulbs as well, which is what we use them with. We ordered two sets of bulb and fixture, and we did have an issue with one of the sets but Chewy very quickly replaced the broken items and we're very appreciative of the excellent customer service. Highly recommend Zilla products, and we'll be using them for the foreseeable future!
Very nice so far

So far I am really loving this. Our tank takes so many lights and they take up so much room I love that this is a low profile product. This will do great for our tank and will free up some more room to maybe add to it.
Great size lamp!
on Jan 27, 2021
This is a nice compact little lamp! I’ve been playing around with lamps to find the best way to heat and illuminate my snakes enclosure and this lamp has done a good job so far! It fits well on top of the tank and the size is great due to the limited space I have to work with! Keep in mind bulbs are sold separately! I received cash back for participating in a cash back campaign.
Not hot enough
on Mar 16, 2021
I tried using this lamp with a halogen bulb but it wasn’t strong enough for my leopard gecko in his 20 gallon. The temperature didn’t get hot enough for my gecko. I’m going to try a mini uvb and see how that goes.

I really like the small size of this Zilla low profile lamp. It's a little bit bigger than the size of my hand, and measures approximately 6" long and 4 1/4" wide. This was very easy to set up and use. The bulbs are sold separately for this, I bought the mini halogen type for mine. This lamp does a good job making light and warmth. My red eared slider is happy! I received cash back as part of a cash back program in exhange for my honest review.
