Hello everyone, I recently bought a new UVB lamp for my beardie since i learned that the ones I own are not the best for them. I have the reptisun 10.0 UVB fixture! it is T5 22inches and is 24 watt. I read the article here "lighting for newbies" and heard under the cabinet light fixture is good for these and can be found in Walmart for a cheap price. Well, I went and can not find one :( I also came online but can't find any! Please help I am having a difficult time finding one and if you know any, please send the link. Thank you :D

Search for sun blaster t5 2ft on amazon. Or go to enclosure forum, look for the new lighting thread and there you'll find a link to the t5 light that I posted.

Great choice on bulb, unfortunately the lighting advice is old on this site and the Walmart fixtures dont work with the best lights. You get what you pay for sort of thing.

Sunblaster fixtures are excellent (i have several) and are bettwen 20 and 40$ on Amazon. Worth the price, but unfortunately not super cheep.

Thank you for telling me this! do you believe this would be a great choice? And i was also wondering, why are reflectors important?

Yep, that's a very good fixture. The high quality reflectors will direct light downward over the basking area that would otherwise be sent upward and wasted. It helps to focus and concentrate the output from the bulb over a specific area.

Thank you so much for your help :D Now I need to find a way to hold it in my beardie's tank :lol:
