will this work for my red eared slider turtle in a 20 gallon tank
Answer by ChewyMar 13, 2019
This lamp is suitable for turtles and tortoises. It stimulates sunlight and helps them develop strong and healthy shells.

Is this good for a frog?
Answer by ChewyAug 07, 2019
This bulb is suitable for some frogs, however, pet owners should take cage size, frog species, and humidity needs into consideration while making a decision on the right bulb for them.

Bad for Dragons

These compact bulbs should never be used with any reptile much less a bearded dragon. They emit too strongly in one spot that cause eye issues for your dragons. I wish they would take these off the market. If you own a reptile, please use the linear bulbs. For beardies use the 10.0 T5 on the screen. Much better and safer for your babies.

Full spectrum without additional heat

I have several cooler-climate snakes that I want to provide full spectrum lighting for without changing the ambient temps and these bulbs meet my needs!

Great light great price.

The light is absolutely awesome as soon as I put it in the socket and turned it on my anole darted to his basking branch. The packaging is awesome and keeps the light very safe and is packed well in the box for shipping so I wouldn’t worry about it arriving broken. This is the third light I have bought of this type and the first one I received from chewy and shipping was fast. I will definitely be coming back

Zoo Med Light

This is a good light for my turtle - it's smaller than the one I had before but does the trick.
