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!

I see my lizard is being given Allopurinol 100ml tablet 10mg/ml (0.4) and tramadol 0.2ml every other day to help with gout. I have tramadol at home can I water it down and give it to her and if so do anyone know how much to water down ?
