Yeah, but who's going to light a reptile enclosure with a fusion reaction? :laughhard:

The goal isn't to match it in intensity perse, it's to match it's output in amounts of visible light wavelengths. I don't know how exactly to put what I'm trying to say into words, but lets just say the goal would be to make the lighting in your tank match that charts line across the spectra, but not necessarily at the same intensity. Imagine if you will cutting the output by half. If you cut in in half across the whole spectra, the line would still be the same across, it would just be lower down.

The lighting we provide is typically very high in greens and blues, and lacks many of the other colors in the spectra. That's the goal. Not to move humanity into the next phase of existastance by creating the sun in our 40g tanks lol!

Yes, I know what you were trying to say. In my best Foghorn Leghorn, “That’s a joke, I say that’s a JOKE son:p

Swordtail has been doing a whole lot of "Lizard yoga" lately
Currently trying not to stress over my anemic dragon....she is being treated, but I don't agree with her treatment plan and have been seeking out a second opinion from another vet. If anyone else has dealt with anemia, please let me know how it was resolved. I am losing sleep over this :cry:
Another post lol. My beardie does not like enclosures. Her tank is the kids room and she has created a nesting/bed spot in the corner. She will cuddle with my son but she know when the lights are out and the kids go to sleep, she literally goes to her bed like she is our 3rd baby. I love her. And to think, I never wanted a beardie lol
Please help. My beardie is my baby and I am worried she may be egg bound but I can't tell. She is over 2 yrs old and has never laid an egg. She has been swollen for two days and can't tell if she may be impacted or egg bound. Please help.
I'm still looking to adopt. I live near Homerville Georgia.
