New Arcadia light flickering

I literally just replaced my previous bulb, it was ringing every so often. Now, my new bulb that I bought back in September is flickering. My first bulb was past its’ exchange rate when I got my new one, and now so is my new bulb. My local reptile store’s workers sympathize with me but can’t do anything. Do I have to replace the bulb again? I’ve only seen it flicker twice.

Do you have a solar meter to test the strength its putting out? If not I would replace it just to be on the safe side- where are you getting the bulbs from?

I got my first bulb from the reptile store near me, the second from Petsmart because my usual was out of stock. I dont have a solar meter, so I guess I’ll buy a new one then…

I know it's kindda a shady thing to do, but you could buy the new buld at petsmart then put that bulb back in the package and return it as faulty. Technically your not stealing, that bulb was bad out of the box and you shouldn't be on the hook just because you didn't use it straight away.

That’s actually a really smart idea 👀

Should I get one from their website? Different stores all have different return dates, the places I get my bulbs have a 2week-4week return date.
Contact Arcadia on their website and tell them you have a light flickering tell them when you got it and you want to know how to return the bulb and they will advise you

i feel so sad reading your about me 😢
Clapton is acclimating okay I think. He's quick as lightning so I'm not sure how much I should bring him out of his house yet. He's not at all interested in his salad though. I wonder if I should change what I'm giving him. Least he's eating his crickets.

Things to do:
Buy calcium powder
Material to raise surface for basking spot
Scenery decals for back of tank
Taking my beardie for a walk
Hi everyone, I have a question please. I have a thick branch I got from outside. It has been in freezing temperatures so I know that it is insect free. I took it off the ground and sat it up during a night we got down to 15 so the entire thing would freeze. Well tonight I put white vinegar all over it too cleanse it since it won't fit in my oven. Do I need to rinse with water tomorrow or is it fine left alone dried?
