    The UVB bulb in my new enclosure is flickering. It's a brand new bulb so maybe it's the fixture? Any ideas on how to fix this?

    Two things I've done is (using a napkin) screw the bulb in tighter and jiggle the cord / push it down.

    Just covering the obvious here, but check that the bulb is tight and the cord is fully plugged into whatever outlet your using. Next would be to try a different bulb in the fixture. Doesn't have to be a UV bulb, just one that fits. It's always possible, although rare, to get one bad from the factory. If the new bulb has the same issue, then I would return the fixture. If not just return the bulb.
