    Newbie Flood light Clarification

    Hi everyone, I'm new to beardies and have been doing a lot of research about lighting. I see a lot of people recommend Philips flood light bulb for a basking light. Just wondering if this is the bulb people are talking about. Thanks for any help. IMG_20200307_154051.jpg

    Also can these bulbs be used as uvb lights but in a 26wIMG_20200307_154115.jpg. Thanks again

    the first bulb is correct , but the second isn't ,its just a standard fluro globe
    a UVB globe will be labelled as a UVB globe or reptile UVB , these generally aren't available anywhere but pet stores , reptile supply stores or online suppliers of the same

    Awesome, thanks. Are the uvb globes are the 23w 10.0 ones? And are there any LED's that are suitable or do they not produce the right type of light? Thanks again

    I only ever used the 26w Exo coils instead of 13's but a year ago converted to Arcadia 14% tubes. There's been significant difference in my older dragons behaviour so I'll stick with Arcadia now but this year will dial it back to 12%.

    I have a variety of dragons in a variety of enclosures so all my light setups are different; I use the Exo Terra 13W UVB10 and 26W UVB10 as well as Reptile One 2' and 3'tubes. The smaller wattages work well in small enclosures and the large ones in larger enclosures obviously.
    And no the LED's are no good, they don't produce any UVB

    T5's. I bought the ProT5 kits from Amazing Amazon so fitting also supplied. If you already use tubes though I think the 12% bulb is also available as a T8 option.
