It's not very good - you should really change to a tube soon (Arcadia T5's are the best easily). Also the bulb you use will need to be changed regularly anyway (they say every 6 months but it's more like 3-4 months), whereas Arcadia bulbs only need to be changed once a year.

Pet shops don't necessarily have the best setups for their animals as they get moved on fairly quickly.

Bulbs are not really good for some species beardies being one of them.. I would much rather see a uv tube in there.. I use a bulb for my tort but, it is a whole different species.. What works for one doesn't always work for another.

Here is how I used to set my viv up for my babies..


It's good friends that walk beside you through the good times and carry you through the bad.
