    Hi all, Firstly I'd like to say thanks for all your help so far, even though you didn't know you gave it! I've been trawling this forum for weeks for help and to answer questions regarding my new Crestie. I'm a new reptile owner, and don't know any anybody that owns one to ask for help so I'd...

    Can I ask a simple question of those of you who have outdoor enclosures for your tortoises in the summer. Do you still give them a UV light when night falls or do you consider they get enough UV light because they're out all day?

    Hi all! I've started to experiment with providing UV light to my snakes, starting with my corn, to see if it makes any noticeable difference to him.

    Hi everyone! I am planning on getting a Crested Gecko and have been researching all the equipment I'll need for the vivarium set-up. When I came to the lighting, I was in two minds about whether I should get a UVB 2% strip light or not due to the vitamin D3 intake need by cresties. I intend...

    I went into town earlier and went into [email protected] for some aquarium plants. My local one has a few reptiles in it but not a lot. The leopard gecko had no lighting in it's enclosure at all and after looking online I have found that some people expose them to some UV and others do not. With that...

    After reading Arcadia's fascinating article in PRK in the issue before last on the extent to which snakes use UV - evolving to see in UV rather than just utilising it for vitamins - I wondered about using it with my royal. I'd heard a few mixed opinions and even been told it WILL...

    Hi, I need to get a new UV light for my beardie and was wondering which one would be best. I'm currently using the Arcadia 12% 34", but with my new background in there it leaves little to no gradient. Viv 120cm(4ft), arcadia tube 86cm, background 10-ish cm, and then I moved it away from the...

    I was thinking of running the D3 Flood light I have spare now I've upgraded my viv and put the luminaire in I think I'm going to mount it above the basking spot would it be best on all day like the luminaire or on a timer from say 11-3pm to simulate the midday sun type thing. Cheers Stu
