Hi!

I currently have a 75 gal tank with a T5 10.0 UVB bulb. My beardie is around 13 months old. My husband was mentioning he read of a UVB bulb and heat bulb all in one? Do those really exist? Are they any good or am I better sticking with my long uvb bulb and heat bulb separately. Thanks!

Yes they exist and they are called MVB--- good ones are PowerSun and Mega Ray --- they are over priced and hard to work w/ on keeping the heat and UVB in balance-- I recommend you stay w/ your regular basking bulb and your T 5- it is always recommended if using one to have a T 5 or T 8 as a back up for the UVB --- they also need to be changed out every 6 months if not using a extra UVB- versus your T 5 every year I recommend every 10-11 months

I agree with Karrieree, the mvb's are a compromise between good uvb/to much heat or a little cooler basking but not enough uvb.
I personally setup basking and uvb separately with some overlap of the two so my guys can chose what makes them happy (and they will, they know better than us what they need)

All-in-One bulbs.
MVBs are very popular
Brings out they're colors a little differently...
MVBs are more-so for advanced reptile keepers.
