10.0 T8 Reptisun vs. 12% Arcadia T8/ Basking Bulb

Postby mmbakerstreet » Thu Apr 02, 2020 10:34 am

Which would be most sufficient/better for a 36 x 18 x 12 Exo Terra enclosure? What would be the best basking bulb for a 36 x 18 x12..Freddie is a year now so I believe his basking spot needs to be a 98-102 which it is but I am wondering what wattage to use for those who use bulbs that are not the reptile designated ones (Like Zoo Med, Exo Terra, Zilla, etc..) :study:

Both of the UVB bulbs you asked about are good the T 8 is not as strong as the T 5- depending on the height of tank which you said is 12" you can use both-- the T 8 would need to go inside the tank approx 8-10 from basking decor--- the T 5 can sit on top of screen- depending on what the screen type is fine or wide holed
