I'm not going to argue as it's all down to personal opinion. I personally only use natural light and my pair are both very well grown, healthy and brightly coloured. I did try using lights (through mesh) as advised, but then my cresties refused to come out of their hides. I'm not saying the lights are bad as I do use arcadia uvb strips for all my reptiles that need it and find that it is by far the best brand on the market at the moment. I just thought a 12% would be more suited to reptiles such as frilled and bearded dragons rather than nocturnal cresties which normally do better with the lower 5%.
