Am looking to get rankins dragons in the next couple of months so have been buying all the kit bit by bit and reading as much as i can as ive never had reptiles before and want to be sure i can care for them correctly.

Ive been looking at Arcadia uv lighting and have been recommended to get the T5 range. After looking on their website i liked the sound of the slimline luminaire as it looks tidy and easy to install but now my local shop are advertising they have stock of uv floods and i dont know what i should be getting anymore, theres so many choices that as a complete beginner im unsure which way to jump!
You're correct, you want the T5. The flood uses the same T5's so it'll work perfectly fine if its large enough. What size vivarium are we talking? It would probably be fine in a viv 3ft in length but any larger and I'd say you'd need a tube. Can't you order online? Try giving arcadiaJohn a message, he'll be able to tell you what's best.
*FOR SALE* 3 female Rankin Dragons and 6x2x2 fully custom stunning vivarium. Thread available here.
