    This just doesn't sound right to me...
    But it does kinda make sense.
    It's at PetSmart.
    Do you guys think it would work in place of a UVB light?
    I doubt I would trust it though...
    But I don't know enough to really know.
    Have any of ya'll ever heard of this? I haven't. Hah.
    Anyone know if it's good or not?

    It's pretty much like the calcium dust with d3 in it. I know most people say it works okay but who knows.

    It sounds too good to be true, I dont see how a liquid substance could replace UVB lighting.

    Solar drops, moon drops, have been around for over 10 years. They are a waste of money.

    Indeed! They are nothing but a way to get in your pocket. Don't waste your money.
    And calcium with D3 is a whole other matter. It isn't sold as being intended to replace a UVB light. Its a food supplement.

    The only "liquid sunshine" that I know of is a rain shower! Don't waste your money. Something that is too good to be true, usually isn't true, and not very good!

    Just wanted other opinions :]
