Chameleon Info:The household bulb doesn't produce UVB. What is the bulb in the long hood? (Brand and information).
got it. and this is the bulb, i don’t have a link.Ok so the vivarium electronic brand model EDJ24W is a T5HO fixture but what type of long bulb did you get to go in the fixture? This is where a UVB bulb would go. Can you send me the link to what you actually purchased so I can see what they included?
As far the daylight blue bulb it is very similar to a regular incandescent and actually does put out a white light. This would be for basking which is your temperature.
Ok bulb strength on this is way too high for a single bulb fixture. You need either a 6% arcadia or a 5.0 zoo med uvb bulb. If your fixture is a 24 inch then the bulb for it is a 22 inch. Bulbs are 2 inches shorter then the fixture.
so is zoo med a brand you’d recommend?Ok bulb strength on this is way too high for a single bulb fixture. You need either a 6% arcadia or a 5.0 zoo med uvb bulb. If your fixture is a 24 inch then the bulb for it is a 22 inch. Bulbs are 2 inches shorter then the fixture.
IF you use this bulb there has to be a 12 inch drop between where the fixture sits on your cage and the highest point baby can get to or the cham will be over exposed with UVB> Using this you will lose all of your upper area of cage.
When you switch down to either a 5.0 or 6% bulb the distance would be approximately 9 inches for proper UVB exposure.
Same :/.Yeah, sorry.
If it helps you to feel better, I have wasted heaps of money on my chameleon on crap I thought was useful but turned out to just be crap
Yeah, I made the same mistake. Take it back and get something else for your cham's enclosure, like branchesaw i bought the bulb for nothing?
