What can I use for my t5 10.0 reptisun bulb

Postby Karebearfreezepop0 » Tue Sep 17, 2019 7:37 am

I have a 10.0 reptisun t5 uvb bulb and I had it in a zoo med hood but I really don’t like this good and it’s expensive. I only had it a couple months and it broke and I think it took the bulb out with it. Was wondering if there’s a different hood, maybe just any old hood that the bulb would fit into that would work?! Thank you

The sunblaster hoods on Amazon are what a lot of us use here :)

I have 2 of the zoo med light fixtures and have had no problem with them. One is a few years old and the other is about 1 and half years old. Something may have happened to yours before you got it or just faulty, either way it does have a 1 year warranty. I'm not sure what it covers but before spending any money on another fixture I would see if they would replace it.
