I wouldn't buy a second hand one as you need to replace them every 6 months anyway you don't know how much use this one has had

Never even seen that one before tbh, looks like an aquarium one to me. I'd just go with the one I linked plus Essex Reptile - Arcadia Electronic T5 Controller 24-39W (ACE1U5) for the controller

I've replied to your PM. As I said I think it'll work but you'll have to replace the bulb as I doubt it is a T5 12% and as has been said even if it is you want to replace it unless you have the receipt of purchase with a date. But as a controller I can't see why it wouldn't work with the 2/3ft tubes. Contact Arcadiajohn just to be sure.

I have answered the OP PM. But yes this is one of our old designs. But it will work fine.

They certainly don't need replacing every 6 months they should do 5 years plus min.

The Arcadia branded T5 lamps are also guaranteed to be upper index powerful for one whole year of use!! It is in this way that you save most money!
