ReptiSun 10.0 UVB Bulb
Google lookup
Product by: Zoo Med
Average Rating: 5 beardies

This latest advancement in reptile UVB lighting is effective at distances up to 20” (compared to 12” with the ReptiSun 5.0). Taller habitats, screen cages, and tank covers can all reduce the amount of UVB reaching your reptiles; the high output ReptiSun 10.0 will ensure that your reptile receives beneficial levels of UVB even in these situations. UVB emissions last one year before lamp needs to be replaced. ReptiSun 10.0 is available in 18, 24, 36, and 48 inch fluorescent tubes to fit most terrarium applications.

Comments: Apparently this is the best bulb out there. But i cant afford this one yet, can anyone tell me what the cheapest alternative is? Is Reptiglo 8.0 good enough for a baby untill the light needs replacement?

Comments: I switched over to this bulb, and my Dragon quickly perked up and became more animated. The difference is amazing!! Its a little difficult to find one on a store shelf around here, but it was well worth the hunt and the slightly higher price tag. Go get one! Your Beardie will thank you!

Comments: Before I got my Beardie, she was just stuck with a normal heat bulb.. no UV lamp in site.. she was very quiet and a little lethargic i noticed so I visited here and I got this product... and so far a(it has been 24 hours from the date on this), she has been eating a lot more and she is very active.. and it stays cool enough on the cool side during the day.. she is in heaven! I recommend this... ^_^

Comments: Journey is much more active with the new enclosure and lighting/heating. I feel very confident that the bulb is one of the main reasons he is doing so well!

Comments: GREAT bulb that you can normally find for about $20.00 + s/h. I noticed an increase in appetite and activity after switching bulbs with my beardie.

Comments: This is the only UVB light I've trusted for years for different lizards. It seems to be the best bet if you need to go through mesh or wire screens. It also doesn't seem to get as hot as other lights I've seen, which makes it work well with a basking light/spot.

Comments: This is great, it appears to work rather well. My beardie seems to have more energy and activity has increased since I changed from a 5.0 to a 10.0 bulb. I think it filters through the mesh screen better.

Comments: I have a wire mesh top cage so got this for the stronger UVB output. Seems to be working well in my setup.

Comments: I started to use this on my baby beaded dragon. He/she gets close to it and has grown like a weed. It is the one of the best products out there.

Comments: My one dragon perked right up with the new light. I have screen tops to my cages and a longer distance to travel to get the light to them. This light seems to fit the bill.
