Hi, you really shouldn't be using anything more than a 5% uvb (through mesh) with cresties as they have very photosensitive eyes and are nocturnal animals. A higher percentage can lead to eye damage and blindness. My advice is to change it when you can =) and report whoever sold you the 12%. A 2% uvb would be your best bet. Cresties enjoy the dark, but if you're wanting to see them out during the day or create a natural day/night cycle a 2% or 5%(max) would be the best.
