You need to take it back and get one thats will fit the size of your uv and the small ones are no good for larger uv tubes. What size is your uv tube? x

Oh dear im sorry. It all depends on the size of your uv tube for the starter you will need. You tube needs to be long enough for your viv so for a 4ft viv i use 42" uv tubes. x

I use ARCADIA starters for my beardie's uva/uvb tube, but like ToxicSiren says it all depends on your viv size. on the back of my arcadia box it has the following:
C1 for tube length 12inch ; C2 for tube's 15" & 18" ; C3 for 24" ; C4 for 30" & 36" ; C5 for 42" & 48". I hope this helps
