    Great purchase!

    By Jess on Oct 1, 2021

    Arrived in its original package, but everything worked and is still functioning properly. Great purchase for your bearded dragon enclosure so they can get the uvb lighting they need!

    maybe just a lemon?

    By Misty on Nov 1, 2021

    I bought this for my new rescue. a good bearded dragon. After much research i decided on this brand for his home. It was working great, very easy to replace the bulb it came with ( comes with a 5 i needed a 10) but then after three days it won’t turn on??? I checked to make sure the light bulb didn’t I bought this for my new rescue. a good bearded dragon. After much research i decided on this brand for his home.

    Doesn’t turn on. Waste of money.

    By on

    Bought the lamp and it doesn’t even turn on. Looks like I’m not the only one with this problem. How can you charge $60 for a lamp that doesn’t work.

    Doesn’t stay on

    By on

    I was recommended to get this light for my bearded dragon. It’s great when it works. It shuts off continuously and you have to wiggle it around for it to turn back on just for it to shut off again. For the price I expected better. Trying to find something new to replace it with that’s more dependable. Kinda disappointed.

    It doesn’t turn on. How are you gonna charge this much for a fixture and send one that doesn’t work? What a joke

    Good but should inform about bulb

    By on

    Very good light, very sleek and stylish. Comes with 5.0 bulb for install inside tank, need 10.0 for on top of screen. Ordered 10.0 bulb as well. Shipped separate for whatever unnecessary reason. Great for my bearded dragon.

    Must Have for your Reptiles, ESPECIALLY BD'S

    By on

    This is the lighting you need to keep your BD healthy. However the bulb that comes with the hood is the 5.0 and we needed the 10.0 because it goes on the top screen. You can use the 5.0 but the hood and buld would need to be put into the terrarium with your dragon to get the right amount of uvb for a healthy BD as they have to be a certain distance away from the bulbs for proper absorbtion and digestion. I hate that pet store and manufacturers sell the coil uvb bulb as they have been shown to cause eye issues in bearded dragons. This is the perfect light for our 40 gallon starter for our juvenile bearded dragon. She has perfect poop and digests all her food with this lighting, this is also This is the lighting you need to keep your BD healthy.
