    Waste of money

    By Jennifer on Sep 22, 2020

    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.

    Works Great!

    By Bianca on Aug 3, 2020

    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!

    By Mike on Dec 28, 2020

    This is a 24” fixture......but it uses an 18” bulb. Description could have been more clear

    Overhead Tank Light

    By SueB on Dec 12, 2020

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

    Nothing Wrong

    By ExoticPets on Sep 2, 2020

    I read other reviews saying that it didn’t come with a bulb so I got an extra just in case but the bulb did come with it and it is working just fine so far.

    Eh, could be better

    By Kera on Jul 19, 2020

    So, when I first got this it was highly recommended, it arrived just fine no breaks or anything but this light fixture is just awful. The company is fine, but the light has no metal on it really, it’s plastic and just ew.. I was expecting better, and it’s extremely breakable! I broke it trying to take a bulb once, get Arcadia, it’s so much better.

    It Works Great!

    By Cooper on Aug 7, 2020

    Despite the poor reviews, I decided to buy this for several reasons. The cost was great, and it already included a UVB lamp, so the cost was even better. I didn't need anything fancy for my beardie's upgraded tanks. When it arrived, I tested it ASAP, and it works great! The poor reviews do not really represent this product that well. Most people should know that UVB does not produce enough heat for any animal, and that UVB fixtures do not need to be anything but plastic for that exact reason. Although I'm still using the bulb included with the fixture, the Zoo Med T8 ReptiSun 10.0 UVB 18-inch Lamp fits perfectly in this fixture. Definitely recommend!

    I use this for my turtle enclosures and it’s perfect! It’s easy to install and the bulbs are easy to change.
