what about a T5 fixture.. are those to low of a light output? or should it be fine with a nice zoomed cfl 26 watt 5.0 uvb raiting also? the lil 20 inch T5 is also uvb 5.0 i belive. Rzilla makes the tube.
IMO=In My Opinionwhat is imo sorry i have heard this a few times haha sorry
Try and return the light if you can.... and yes, buy a Zoo Med linear lamp and you can get a fixture for it at Home Depot or Lowe's. I just got a dual 24" T8 fixture from Lowe's and it was about $20? I had to install a cord on the fixture, but I have those laying around so it was easy for me... might be a bit harder for others.ok ok deal.. but Darn i bought this really sweet setup hood with timmer and 2 fixtures for 2 basking spots or what ever i need it for that swivel side to side. plus it has the 20 inch T5 tube uvb light.. this is a RZilla product. Never really looked into this light size? i spent a good $ for it. $115.00 hmm so should i just go get the T8 or T12 fixture with a zoomed linear type tube UVB? if so its not a problem i guess, if its for Reptar lol
It's not so much that bright is bad... it's just the heat and the type of light. Most of the lighting we give our chams is not bright enough for them vs. natural sun. But they do live out of direct sunlight for the most part. So it isn't sooo bad. But just keep an eye on the guy. If you can buy a lux meter, that'd be fun to play with. There is one on e-bay for like $20. I've seen other sites selling them for a lot more money and they look exactly the same....will do and lower the watts lol thanks again.
