This light is a piece of junk. It would only stay on if we were actively pushing the bulb in; as soon as we let go and flipped it over onto our bearded dragon's tank it turned off. Off/on/off/on, so frustrating. It's cheap plastic and clearly doesn't have a great connection to the bulb. I ended up buying a fixture from Home Depot and purchasing the ReptiSun 10.0 T8 bulb here instead. Don't buy this!
Good for the price

The product description is misleading, the bulb ONLY produces UVB, no heat. Some reviews said the bulb was not producing UVB so I tested and the bulb I got IS working correctly and producing UVB. However, the light does not penetrate very far down, so I wouldn't necessarily recommend this for a bearded dragon, or anything in a large tank. I use this for my emerald swift, as he's in a 20 gallon long tank and the lightweight fixture is good for the smaller tank.

The sizes aren’t correct and the lamp does NOT produce any heat! I’m going to return this immediately
items don't go together!

It would be great if the lamp was sized to fit the bulb. The lamp takes an 18" bulb. The bulb in the kit (frequently bought together) was for a 24" lamp. Go figure.
Waste of money

I purchased this light fixture for my Russian tortoise's enclosure. I assumed that the bulb would produce UV as stated, so I mounted it in the enclosure. After several hours, I used my UV meter to see how far/close it needed to be to the substrate to be beneficial. The UV meter read 0%! There is absolutely NO UV benefit from this bulb. Unfortunately, because I drilled some small holes in the plastic part of the fixture for mounting purposes, I cannot return it and get my money back. Zilla lost me as a future customer. To be clear, my issue is with Zilla, not Chewy.com. I would give it 0 stars, but the lowest rating is 1 star.

Got for my hermit crabs when their light went out. This light is even better than the one I had.

I bought this light fixture for my baby bearded dragon and I haven’t had any issues with it at all! Plus, the product was reasonably priced and arrived damage-free. However, the fixture is mostly plastic, so it’s not quite as durable as others, but it’s still fairly high-quality for the price. Although I don’t know how well it would work for aquatic animals, I would definitely recommend getting this for a desert reptile, like mine!
