    I rescue bearded dragons. I chose Arcadia MVB specifically for it's great UVB. I got a solar metre so I can check monthly on how the UVB is doing. Most of the lights I've bought over the last 4 or so years, since I started using them, have lasted over a year, some almost 2 years before UVB was depleted. I get 80W for my dragons because it doesn't over heat them. As a result, they sit under their UVB light all day that they are in their tank. They also get outside time, so I have an MVB at the top of a ramp I built in the living room so they could see outside.

  2. Yes I received my bulb and my food for my bearded dragon and he loves the UVB bulb I tried to put a basking within and he got not only that it reptile basics I ordered your heat projector for him and he loves it and thank you very much 5 Star Review
