Is this an okay fixture for an Arcadia 14% T5 bulb? I've been looking for the Arcadia fixture, or the ZooMed fixture, but both seem to be sold out everywhere.

It comes w/ a bulb as well dont use it its not for reptiles --- it should take it its for HO T 5 bulbs -- you can also look at this place for the Zoo Med fixture --- https://www.reptilesupplyco.com/wholesa ... o-med.html
I would call them first tho and find out about how long it would ship out 916-226-4089 they are out of CA

When I've tested similar fixtures I found that the output was lower than expected. Possibly due to a poor quality reflector. Since the 14% is such a powerful bulb that may not matter as much but it's hard to say without measuring the output. I would keep looking for grow light fixtures. I use Sun Blaze and it works well, however I've been having a hard time finding them with reflectors lately.
