  • Noticeable change

    Couple hours after I placed this in my beardie home she was moving around more, wanted to eat more and just overall seems so much happier. The only thing is it didn't last as long as I had hoped but still going to reorder. The light wasn't hot which is good.

  • Not Very Bright but good for box turtle terrarium

    By on

    I recently bought this bulb for my box turtle terrarium. I use it in addition to a 50 watt basking bulb. This bulb isn't very bright but it works well enough to illuminate the basking area with UVB and UVA. I was told you don't need more than the 5.0 for a small terrarium. It doesn't give off any heat so you need a basking bulb for that. My little one seems to like it (and her new 36 inch terrarium). I wouldn't know if it's actually working (for giving the correct amount of UVB AND UVA ) but I sure hope so. She's just a little thing and she has a long way to grow!

    I've ordered this twice in a month.. The first one blew after 2 weeks of use, the second blew after just a week! Now I have to order it AGAIN! it's too expensive to have to replace every week.

  • for Bob my RES

    By on

    After buying the 10.0 bulbs for over a year, I finally learned that pet turtles need the 5.0 bulb. I really thought that I'd done my homework, but apparently not. He will only get the 5.0 UVB bulbs from now on. I've only used the Reptisun brand and have never had any issues with performance. And if I understand this correctly, the bulb will still emit light even after it stops giving out the UV rays, so it's important to keep track of when they need to be replaced. They are supposed to last for 12 months. I replace mine at 10 months. If this information that I have is incorrect, someone please correct me. Thanks.

    My tortoises love sitting out and catching UVB rays now. I've seen them become more active since I installed the bulb.
