I got this for my Leopard Geckos, even though they are nocturnal. I have noticed for a few months now that my geckos come out in the evening and bask a little bit before the light gos off. So I figured why not get this light as well and give them a little UVB as well. They have show better color and are a lot more active. This fixture also lights the terrarium well and evenly.
Light works great, just have to remove the plastic cover. If you have trouble with getting it to turn on, make sure the bulb is in place. Making it rotate so its in the slots correctly takes a little bit of pushing pressure, dont worry, these bulbs are stronger than you think. Just dont man handle it, use some finesse.
When I got the light it wouldn't turn on, so I took it apart and some of the plastic parts inside were broken and the lamp wasn't secure. After I got the lamp secure I put it together and I worked fine. Now that its working I like it.
I have had to exchange the lamp three times already. Each time the lamp has only lasted about 3 to 6 weeks then it starts to flicker and flicker and flicker and either keeps flickering or eventually burns the bulb out. Other than that it is one of the best lamp kits I have found.
I think this product works great. It came with the fixture and the bulb that seems to work pretty well and it wasn't too expensive. If you just use this fixture with the bulb it works great. It's great for my leopard gecko because it needs some light but not a massive amount. It helps create the desert feel that my gecko needs to make sure it stays healthy.
We bought this for our sons Leopard Gecko Puppysnake and have to say that its one of the best UVB fixtures we've ever used up that point. Unlike other UVB bulbs, you replace the light less often which means less money wasted on bogus fixtures that dont live up to their promises plus its medically beneficial to Puppysnake also. I feel good knowing that this bulb is helping keep his little bones strong and healthy not to menion helping ensure the happy friendship between him and our son wont get cut short by bone disease.
