Basking bulb - URS spot globe ??

Postby MarlowAndMe » Sat Oct 20, 2018 2:26 pm

Set up new viv and struggling with basking light. I have looked everywhere for a par38 and only one I could get was too large for my dome.it didn’t work for setup.
So I hurried out to get one elsewhere and petshop only had one , this one https://www.mypetwarehouse.com.au/urs-b ... 5w-p-15284 but in 60w. So far it’s getting temp up , I’ve onky had it going for 10mins.

But is it an ok light? I can order one to replace it but I’ll be looking at a week before it arrives so I’ll have to use the URS at least for a week
If it’s not a good one would this be better?

Hi there, I think either one would be good, Arcadia is probably better.

Thanks :)
I did buy the URS one but it’s not giving me quite high enough temp so I think I’ll try getting the Arcadia one

You're welcome. :) For now can you drape a small blanket or heavy towel over part of the viv to keep more heat in ?

I have the basking and the che ( che is on full time as it’s cold here) in domes sitting on top of the mesh
The basking spot is only 33c and cool end is 23c ish

I’m using a temp gun for those temps
And ignore the uvb hood as I’m just waiting on my t5 prot5 Arcadia 12% kit to arrive
