I have a mvb power-sun 100 watt about 12 inches away from my beardie and added a Arcadia 12% t5 with reflector about 10-8 inches away i noticed my beardi starts to close his eyes after a while i believe its due to too much uvb should i just use the mvb by itself or should i use the Arcadia t5 with reflector with a normal basking bulb what would be better for uvb this would be over mesh

Hi there,

Personally I like the tube UVB bulbs best. The Arcadia is a great bulb. I'd go with the Arcadia and a normal basking bulb. But the Arcadia really should be 12 inches or so away from the basking site. 8 is a bit close.
