i see your gutloding mustard greens and turnips i try to use as many ingrediants as possible in both my dry and wet gut loads as far as not eating my veileds around that age and he eats 6-8 a day depending on size of feeders the only time he refuses too eat is when hes coming into a shed he gets pretty grumpy:eek: i would post a pic of your set up and cham and maybe someone else has more info on your type of lighting:)
Combo bulbs

As far as what I remember from what I've been reading, the issue with those combo bulbs isn't an eyesight thing ( that's the compact spiral uvb) it's more an issue of they can't choose to regulate their exposure like they could wig two separate heat & UVB bulbs. If they need UVB, they have to stay in the heat, and if they need heat, they have to stay under the UVB. If theres two bulbs, they could go to other side to get UVB but not heat, etc.
I'm no expertt of course, but that's what I remember reading somewhere.
