Sure does , Arcadia Reptile know their stuff and the slimline hoods are very nice (and not as bulky at Zoo Med's and others).
Even better still , the slimline hoods come with a T5HO UVB tube of your choice (6% , 12% , or 14%) in the price.

They can also be daisy chained if you have a very long tank.

What site are you on ? .
If you are on Arcadia's website you need to follow the links to a retailor , or simply google or ebay search for the length or wattage and %UVB T5ho Slimline you seek and buy form there.

what country are you based in ?

They've "updated" their website , taken a lot of very good information out of it :( …. IMO the current website is very poor compared with what they had up until last year (was a wealth of information).

try their FB page. failing that , try Amazon, Ebay, Google to find local retailers.

I bought my Arcadia MVBs and slimline luminairs from BIRMINGHAM REPTILE and had them posted to me using PARCEL FORCE , because Australian resellers didn't have the gear I needed and I didn't want to wait for months on backorder and pay through the nose for the dubious privilege.
