Default Arcadia T5 14%

I've just bought one of these 14% bulbs and noticed it says on the packet minimum distance from the lizard to the tube is 15 inches. The T5 12% tubes state 15 cm as minimum so just wondering why the difference in distance is so much?

For a dragon the wild index of 6-7 for basking is produced at 12" from the 12%

It is 15" from the 14% lamp being more powerful

Thanks John, I'll keep it 15" away then though probably will go with the 12% bulb next time as the vivarium is not very high.
