Reptisun T5 HO 10.0 UVB High Output Bulbs says its better uva and uvb than t8s any one use these?
Ive personally never tried then but hear that they are pretty good I personally use the arcadia t5 HO bulbs
Yes, they perform significantly better than T8 variants; The ZooMed versions are said to perform identically to Arcadia's T5 HO fluorescents. Just make sure you have the correct fixture and ensure the bulb is mounted properly.
Another Arcadia T5 user here, well for my sunlovers.
T8s for animals that may live in shadier areas
For my desert living, sun loving, bearded dragon the only way to go was with the Arcadia HO,12%,T5 +D3 tubes. The difference in her colours was amazingly better and the whole viv is a lot brighter. They do put out a small amount of heat which may have an effect on the overall hot end and cool end temperatures, but an outstanding bit of kit.
I'm also using Arcadia, but I was told that the Reptisun are identical when tested with a meter.
I thought the 10.0 was the light we were suppose to use for beardies. 5.0 is enough?
