I had turned this on the first morning I got it and off after 14 hrs and the next morning it was blown. I am very upset.
Bulb didn’t work properly and burned out within an hour.
I had to replace my UVB light and ordered the same size as the one I had. While it fits in the fixture, it's substantially skinnier than the old bulb.
This last one I bought stopped working after only 4 weeks, and I have had bulbs in the past that lasted months longer than that. I don't recommend these.
As a multi-pet owner, I try to provide the BEST care for all of my pets....including the reptiles! This Sun lamp is my favorite! I use it in my green iguana's enclosure, just remember to change them out every 6 months for the perfect UVB exposure.
I've received my box on time however it was messed up. I didn't think much of it but when I placed the bulb in, nothing happened. I reversed it, flipped it, nothing worked. So now I have no uvb for my Uromastyx.
It's just the tube. I searched everywhere on this listing to try and make sure I knew I was getting a lamp, because I needed one. Now my bearded dragon will need to wait to get her uvb. You should probably make it clearer.
I try to always get my uvb strips from chewy as they have the best price for the size!
Chewy does not specify the size of the bulb is T8. I should have looked closer or not bought this. T8 is the traditional standard size of lightbulb for reptile habitats but more recently T5 size fixtures are available online--I have a T5 fixture. Zoo Med makes T5 lightbulbs and many online retailers carry the T5 and T8 bulbs. Chewy does not state which size they carry. I ordered this by mistake, thinking I had finally found the T5 size bulbs I wanted. Wrong. If Chewy had put more of the import size details of the bulk in the item description. Sure, its my fault for buying before I was certain I had found the correct item, but it is also Chewy's fault for not including the bulb size (not talking about length) when most other online retailers do include that detail. I would not have ordered from Chewy at all if I had know this was coming. Extremely disappointing online shopping experience.
Our turtle needs a UVB light to maintain it's proper health. The light fits perfect and the shipping and cost were fantastic! All came in perfect condition.
