different UVA/UVB lamp...


New Member

Yesterday I bought a new UV lamp for my 8 month old veiled cham since the old one was 6 months old. When I got home I noticed that it wasn't the same model. The last model was 3% UVB and the other 7 %, the new one is 5% UVB and 30% UVA. This seems to me to be quite a difference. Can I still use it?
It sounds like your new one is a Zoomed Reptisun 5.0. If that is the case, then you have purchased a very good bulb which will work just fine for your chameleon.

Good to know, thanks! But the bulb is actuallly a repti glo 5.0 from Exo Terra. The vet told me that this brand is actually only good for 4 months rather than 6. I just forgot to ask about the percentage of UVA/UVB.
I use Repti Glo, and all the people who I know have Repti Glo (and they change it after 6 months)- so don´t worry, this is a good bulb as well.:)
