It can work. I think that one comes with a plastic cover. If so, you want to make sure and remove it. It will need to be mounted under the screen 6-8 inches directly over the basking spot. The bulb needs to be replaced in six months. Even if it still works, the UVB output drops too low after that.
Yes as stated by smaug it will work and follow the advisement for placement - I do recommend you change the Zilla bulb out they are not as good as the Reptisun 10.0 T 8- so look for a 22" bulb - it should go right into the fixture --- if you need help getting it placed in the tank please ask or take the screen off your tank and place the fixture on one end of the tank going width wise w/ the screen butted up to the fixture so you have the basking light and UVB on one end of the tank - make sure you have the cover off the fixture and a piece of decor directly under it ---- if you have anymore questions please ask

Okay, Thank you so much we'll make sure to follow that. My beardie says thank you!

I do have one last question, Will I be able to keep this light in the tank while still having my other lights on top of the screen?

Yes the bulb is not strong enough to go thru the screen I posted a better bulb for you above and more ways to get it on the tank

Glad to hear that she's eating more. :)Update from time to time and get the god uvb, it's worth the money.
We definitely will! I'll do anything to make her live a healthy life. she eats about 25+ a day. I give her 6-8 per feeding and give her 4 feedings a day because that's the amount she seems to eat. And she is eating her greens so I think everything's looking good!

is my bearded dragons left side supposed to be hard, it’s right above its left leg in the back, it’s kind of hard? i feed it insects and greens. not sure if it’s normal or not? i can post pictures.
His first vet visit went well! Abelardo Texas looks good physically according to his new Dr.
Unfortunately, on the fecal it showed that he has Coccidia. Not a surprise honestly... he has been having diarrhea since I got him. I got Albon, F10, and a steam cleaner on hand.
I'm kinda freaked out, I heard coccidia is a beast to get rid of. Wish me luck! 😭
Sorry didn’t mean to post the last post was an accident, but I do have a question I have a 7 month old dragon, her name is Smaug and she will not eat her salad I have tried everything that I can, just wondering if anyone can help me because I’m stuck and I know that she should probably be eating them by now! If anyone can give me ideas that would be great!
