Default Arcadia UVB with Arcadia fitting..

I am about to order a 24" Arcadia D3 12% tube for my beardie and I was just wondering do I have to use the Arcadia tube fitting or can I use any brand?

Mine is an Eiko one.. am I alright to use an Arcadia tube? It's currently got a Repti-Glo in hense why I want to change it lol

If it's a standard-size tube, any decent fitting should do.

decent fitting? abit vague...

depending on which tube you choose and what the wattage is you will have to match it to a uv starter of equal wattage.

this is important if you want the tube to work properly and prevent it from blowing!

the reptile shop should be able to pair you up a decent tube and starter.

Yeah I understand the wattage thing I've got a couple of other dragons which are all sorted.

While I'm asking.. I looked at the started before and it says 30w on it but the tube I'll be getting is only 18w .. does this matter?

the starter is too powerfull, you want a 15~20watt starter
