Halogen bulbs should not be touched with bare hands as the oils of the skin will significantly shorten the life of the bulb or cause it to shatter.

Questions & Answers

39 Customer Questions

Are the lights designed for day and night use? If so, which one do I turn on during the day and which one do I leave on at night?
Answer by ChewyOct 11, 2017
The halogen bulb gives off light and heat to mimic the daytime sun and a UVB bulb that’s essential for health. When the halogen light is left on it feels like daytime to your pet.

How long should I leave the lights on for? Is there I can leave on 24/7?
Answer by ChewyAug 30, 2018
In general, the "daytime" lights (that is, the basking and UVB lights) should only be kept on for 10 - 12 hours a day. When the daytime light is not on, either a night light or no light at all should be used.

Could I use this fixture for a baby green anole?
Answer by ChewyJun 11, 2018
This heating light kit is intended to use with All Reptiles, Aquatic Turtles, Lizards, and Snakes.

Can this be used with a ceramic heat bulb that stays on 24/7 during cold months?
Answer by ChewyFeb 15, 2021
The ceramic heat emitter cannot be used in the mini combo dome that comes in the lighting kit. The ceramic heat emitter can only be used in the Zoo Med wire cage clamp lamp LF-10. The heat emitter when used in the double dome can cause damage to the fixture.

This light combo has done wonder for my 26 year old turtle! I noticed he was slowing down quite a bit and even losing color, so did research and changed his light system to this. He has improved greatly!

Best Lights You Can Buy

First, I'd like to address the issues people claim to have with this product. Some people are talking about how it stops working after a while. Yes, heat and UVB bulbs need to be replaced every 6 months to a year. Another person gave it a lower score because it didn't keep their water warm. That isn't what heat bulbs are for! Get a water heater to heat water. Now onto the actual review, this is an amazing product and I have it on all 3 of my aquatic turtle tanks. My turtles love it, the bulbs it comes with are the correct wattage for the vast majority of semi aquatic turtles, like sliders, painted turtles, musk turtles, and map turtles. I have had the fixtures for a while, and I have needed to replace the bulbs because they do stop working after a while. The dual lamp fixture itself has held up perfectly. It has a little handle on it, so if you need to pick it up when it's still hot, you aren't going to burn yourself. This can also be used to hang it from a lamp stand. Also, it is much cheaper on Chewy than in any pet store. If what you need is a relatively inexpensive light fixture with heat and UVB bulbs, this is the way to go.

Great for the Price

Normally, this is I think $70, that's not worth it for what you get. It's so worth it for $35, if you have aquatic turtles and you need uvb and heat and a dome, get this. cant go wrong. might have to look at what you need for your specific species, but for most these bulbs are good.

Works great

My turtles love basking under the light. It came in working condition with both bulbs and was a lot cheaper than buying from the pet store.

Great and Easy Setup

Figured I'd write a review after using this lamp for a while. So far, I've had it for seven months. The lamp itself still works great. One of the original bulbs that it came with finally blew out today. The other one is still going strong. I'd definitely recommend this product.

its super good haha

My turtles love sunbathing in it and it’s perfect for the Arizona winter where things get pretty chilly.

Great product for new owners!

This turtle kit provides you with both a heating light and a uvb bulb. The set up is simple and fast. I have one for each of my two turtle tanks and they both do the job!

Great Lamp for your Turtles

I have bought this lamp twice and my turtle loves it!! It provides heat on one side of the lamp and the UVB on the other side!! She loves to bask in her basking area under this lamp!! Great price and lasts a long time!! The 1st lamp we had bought lasted almost 3 years!! So it's well worth the money!! Very durable!!

Stopped working

Not even three months since my purchase and one side already stopped working. I changed the bulb thinking it burned down but turns out is this lamp the problem
