    Hello Ive been considering getting some UVB for my crestie for a while now, but what's been keeping me from doing it, is that he enjoys spending his time very close to the mesh top of my enclosure. In fact, he's rarely less than 10cm from the top, and im a bit reluctant to move the branches and...

    We are in a bit of misunderstanding with our female leopard gecko who isn’t eating like she used to. My brother, who takes care of the gecko says that these past few months are their natural breeding months and they slow down considerably when offered food, but I don’t know if that is true or...

    Hi folks, I'm a little overwhelmed with lighting options for Leopard Geckos and would really appreciate it if someone could help me out. I want to provide our leo with a UVB light, and have already ordered a 2.4% UVB kit from Acardia based on recommendations I had seen online. However, when I...

    It has been just over a year since I have gotten my blazing blizzard leo and I have been considering getting him a UVB light. From what I have heard blizzards are pretty light sensitive and they have albino in their genes. I know technically you do not need to provide them with lights however...

    I was doing some measuring today and noticed that my beardies basking spot in his soon to be old vivarium is just over 15" to the Arcadia T5 d3+ so I decided to drop the UVB down a bit. The UVB used to be screwed to the top but I couldn't get the basking spot high enough for the UVB without the...

    As per my previous post I'm building out an Ackie viv. For the basking spot I am going to use a 120W halogen, a Deep Heat and either a 14% Dragon lamp or a 12% Desert T5. I've been told Dragon lamps are best placed 40 to 50cm away, whilst the Desert T5 should be 30 to 40 cm away. Then I've...
