I just want to be sure. Do I need to change my light every 6mo or once a year. It is the reptisun 10.0 T5 ho. Thanks for you help.


good to change every 6mo, but if you have a solar meter that can accurately detect UVB then i would say when it is only putting out ~70% and the bulbs actually drop to that around 3-4 months depending on how long they stay on per day.

Th T5 lamps last well over a year. If you have a meter you can get the most of them, if not replacing every 12months is a good plan.

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?
