    Ok, so I know everyone here looooves them some MVB.
    Today marked the start of my building project. I'm beyond thrilled.
    I was on reptileluv.com looking at the different bulbs and things there.
    Today at the Reptile House, while build f/t pinkies for my new corn that's comming soon (yay), I saw they had similar bulbs by ZooMed and T-Rex. Those too provided UVA and UVB...
    Now, how would you guys compare the products?
    Also...
    my CWD tank is going to be 4 feet long, 4 feet tall, and 2 feet deep.
    the beardie tank is going to be 4 feet long, 1.5 feet tall, and 2 feet deep.

    Would one bulb be enough to heat both enclosures?
    I'm a bit worried about the WD enclosure seeing as it's going to be quite a bit bigger.. any suggestions?
    Any wattage suggestions? These are not cheap bulbs so I don't want to screw up here.

    Hello,

    I use one of these to test the UV output: Solarmeter 6.2 Most lights have already been tested. The Mega Rays are deemed the best!

    Your best bet would be to contact Bob. (the owner of Reptileuv.com). There is a section on the site that allows you to do just that. He will tell you what lighting would be best for you.

    I doubt that the lighting alone will produce enough heat to maintain a proper gradient however. You will need supplemental heating for at night likely as well!
