It is a reptisun 10 h0 fixture the smallest size. I purchased it on petmountain.com with the 10 bulb. It comes with the 5.0 I use on my panther chameleon.

So your using the 14" fixture?? Your will need to upgrade that fixture to at least a 24" -- please show me the set up of the tank ---- your screen on the tank is a wide hole or a fine mesh like a screen door- if its a fine mesh the fixture either needs to go inside the tank w/ a distance of 12-15 inches directly above the basking decor or if the screen is wide hole type it can sit on the screen w/ a distance of 8-10 inches directly above the basking decor --- these placement and distances are imperative for correct UVB rays ----

Your 14" is a T 5 as well? If so please put a piece of decor directly under the UVB approx 8-10 inches -- he needs to be able to sit directly under it and make sure you change the bulb out in approx 1 year I do mine a month prior to

The 14" is a reptisun 10 but is the skinny bulb t5 or H0 not sure real name of it. Is starting a dubia colony hard to do? Have a few reptiles that are eating alot of them daily.

Ok she's opening her mouth- you need to work w/ her same idea applies- try handfeeding put a blanket piece of clothing in her hide something w your smell on it so she gets used to you- you can hold her for a few minutes at a time in her tank -

How is your baby doing? I’m sorry for the cold responses no one purposely sucks their pet into their vacuum and then posts for help, like I’m sure the little guy would rather live than get put from its misery over a bum leg.... was just curious if he survived this or not.

Hello,

Thanks for the update, that is terrific his leg is all back to normal now. He is one lucky
dragon, to have no residual damage done from the accident. I'm glad to hear he is doing
well & eating, too.
Let us know how he is progressing.

Hi,
Have a question on the reptisun 10 t5 h0 skinny tubes. Do they need be replaced every 6 months or yearly. I know the reptisun 10 t8 are every 6 months. But just wanna make sure. These bulbs are expensive.
