    ZooMed makes the bulb and it says it produces UVA and UVB. It also produces heat (100 watt). Is the UVA UVB sufficient? Or should I go with a regular ExoTerra bulb with a separate UVA UVB bulb that runs along the tank?

    Depends on what you are using it for. Different herps have different needs.

    I think that you are getting your bulbs confused.
    The reptisun 2.0 is a fluorescent bulb. It doesn't come in 100 watt and produces no heat.
    And any UVB bulb will also be generating UVA

    Yes I did confuse my bulbs. It's called the Powersun UV by Zoo Med. It is 100 watt and says it produces UVA and UVB. It is a self ballasted mercury vapor bulb. My question is whether this bulb will produce adequate amounts of UVB. It will be for a BTS in a 75 gallon aquarium.

    It is a little high but I will add 3-4 inches of substrate and a raised basking area.
