Looking at the science of reptile lighting and the inherent limitations of tech it is apparent that the footprint from most M.V lamps is too narrow for some enclosures and species.

They are also expensive to run!

It is better for your animals and your running costs to let T5 do the donkey work and usenthe basking lamps for areas of UV and heat boosting first thing in the morning and evening.

The animal will self regulate readily and obtain all that it's needs itself.

You can successfully use M.V on it's own in smaller enclosures but T5s and reflectors really do a wonderful job.

Happy to help if anything isn't clear

John
