    LED lighting…?

    Hey All, I've been researching for the panther chameleon I'm hoping to get in the next two months, and I've seen a LOT of discussion about lighting. The one thing I've seen very little about is LED lighting as a source of UVB. The most I've seen is a post from a few years ago about UVB...

    Light Bulb Types

    So I finally decided I'm getting a chameleon (yay! :) ) and I have started setting up the enclosure (will post pics when finished) but I have a couple questions about lighting. First of all, there seems to be some conflict about how long the uvb bulbs (I'm using a reptisun 5.0 T5 HO) actually...

    UVB Lights - 5.0 Or 10.0?

    I hear so many things about UVB lights. Some say to change the bulb every six months, but the manufacturer says their bulb emits UVB rays for a full year. Then there's the question about strength. What is best for a chameleon, 5.0 UVB or 10.0 UVB, and why? I am about to hit that 6 month mark...

    Reptisun T5 HO

    So I've been meaning to try these bulbs but apparently they don't make/ I can't find any sizes to fit my light fixtures... I have a 24" fixture holding a 18" bulb and a 30" fixture holding a 24" bulb. Do they design these bulbs only to fit their Zoomed terrarium hoods to handle the higher...

    What does excessive UVB light do to reptiles?

    Hello all, Let's assume we are talking about reptiles not receiving a D3 supplement. Captive reptiles can suffer from an excess of D3 due to over-supplementation. However, in the wild, reptiles receive D3 from UVB exposure and their food only. My question is, if I were to put a desert uvb...

    What do you use? UVA+UVB

    Hey guys, just wandering what everyone uses in conjunction with their UVB light set-up? I believe the Exo Terra linear tubes (for UVB output) has a 6700K rating, so what regular UV light (and rating) should I use with it to stimulate a more natural "sun" look?

    Should I switch from 5.0 UVB to a 10.0?

    I had a question about UVB Light Bulbs. As recommended on the forum, I currently use a Reptisun 5.0 for my Jackson's Chameleon (Xanth). Its on top of a 18x18x36 screen cage. However I have noticed that pretty often he will climb up a branch and sit himself as close to the UVB as possible, and...

    Uvb/heat bulb size

    I'm thinking of starting free ranging max (for now just allowing him to chill on a 2nd tree outside of his cage when I'm home) my question is if I have say two trees several feet apart (with a vine connecting them) do I need 2 UVB and heat blubs for each tree, or one huge one that covers both...

    Repti-Sun CFL: Old vs. New

    At the last SBCK meeting (09-27-09, held at Elisa's house) Dave weldon presented a lecture on UV lighting. One of the topics was about the damaging UVC and high levels of UVB that is put out by a CFL. We also talk about determining the old phosphor mixture from the new. The phosphor is what...

    Water Droplets in the Sun?

    I have had a thought pass through my head the last few times I have had the chams in their outdoor cages getting misted. When they are out there I spray there cages down from outside the cage, I typically spray down the top of the cage to allow water to drip down into the cage like rain, but...

    Zoo Med Dropping T12 UVB Lamps.

    To make things simple I have copied the post I made for the UV meter owners club to this thread: Two weeks ago I purchased a pair of Zoo Med Reptisun 48" T12 10.0 UVB lamps. Using Dave Weldon's 6.2 Solarmeter, I took readings on the lamps to get an idea of what a new lamp's output would be. I...
