hi, the new Arcpods are UV transmissive and will work fine over a small area with lamp FD3C11. but older versions are not UV transmissive. SO a waste of time. the only way to be sure is to put a meter under it. We do now have a purpose built reptile version, stock code AA11D3. all the best, john
No not at the moment, it is very hard to get a T5 controller that dims properly. I am working on it though. The exo ones don't dim but just reduce the current buy three levels and only work on low output T8. Not much use really. We do make really nice T5 canopies though. Check out our website and look at viv top canopy and slimline T5 Arcadia Reptile
Any bulb you use needs to be on a stat. This stops burns, over heating and in some cases fires. The chameleons in theory should walk away when hot enough but may sit there with their mouths open trying to cool down.
I personally dont use any night time heating but a ceramic on a stat set at 65f will do the job if you choose to heat at night.
