To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I bought this to add UV to my eurydactylodes agricolae. The light is housed in a Zilla Fxtr Low Profile Dual G9 fixture along with a tiny blue daylight 25W halogen bulb, and I have the fixture setup on a day/night cycle timer. I didn't start using it until about late March to early April. Today I noticed that the this bulb is dead. The halogen bulb is still working. I expected to get more than a month of bulb. Very disappointed.
I bought this for my green anole in a 10 gallon tank, the amount of UV it emits is not close to enough for the anole's needs. It stopped eating and would become dark brown even when basking directly under the bulb. After I decided to spend the money and got a Reptisun 10 with a 5.0 bulb, now my anole is finally eating again and looks much more lively.
I would only use this for animals that need only a little bit of UV, like frogs, nocturnal geckos, salamanders, etc, in a small enclosure no bigger than 10 gallons. But it seems to keep my Leopard Gecko happy.
