Beardies require a 10.0 UV, could you return it and swap for a 10.0?

Hi
you are also better off getting a repti-sun rather then repti-glo. This is because if you look at the packaging on the repti-glo's they say to use two bulbs at the same time ie 5% in conjunction with a 2%, this is because they give off less UVB rays and thus is why they are cheaper then the repti-suns. I use either repti-sun 5 or 10 with my beardies
