I have been using it for couple days and it works great for now. It was easy to install bulb. Happy with this purchase
Bought this light fixture because the one I had didn't have a metal reflector. I checked it and the card said he was not getting much uvb. Put my bulb in this new one, couldn't believe how much he's getting now and the price was also better than of all the pet stores I wasted time in. Even arrived when it was supposed to. Will buy from Petmountain again.
...my only complaint is that it buzzes rather loudly. All florescent lamps tend to buzz but this one is a bit louder than most. Maybe mine has an issue, but not worth sending it back. Light works very well otherwise.
As far as most of the products in and outside of my Terrarium go, Exo-Terra is the name I trust. However, I could not justify purchasing an Exo-Terra Terrarium Hood for my 36x18x18 enclosure! It was nearly as expensive as the enclosure itself!!! I've heard really great things about the Zoo-Med ReptiSun Terrarium Hood and I will be the first to say that this hood is not a cheap piece of equipment! It's excellent! It does exactly what it's supposed to do. I have zero complaints about it! Don't be worried about the price. The quality is terrific!
I had been using a cheap under the cabinet light fixture from walmart to house my reptisun. It worked perfect, but it was blinding when I walked by! I couldnt make myself spend the $40+ at the pet store, so very glad I found this online! It holds my 18'' reptisun 10.0 tube perfectly, and it blocks the light from view when your looking into the tank so its not all you focus on! Great buy for the price! Also works well on a timer.
Man, this was one of my recently first time item I bought off of this website I thought this was just gonna be a crappy cheap hood but man when it arrived in the package it was great even the fragile light that I bought was even in great condition. I thought it was broken until I read the other review about having to twist the bulb into hoods place to get the light to turn on. Anyways its a very good product i will definitely start buying all of my supplies from here for now on, thank you pet mountain!!!!!!
At first, i thought it was broken because id put the bulb in and and turn it on and nothing would happen. After a while, i figured out you have to turn the bulb once in place, so that the metal transmitter? thingys connect. Then bam! i got uvb rays. woo hoo.
GREAT PRODUCT AND BEST CUSTOMER SUPPORT.
I have a Greek tortoise and he had been acting more sluggish this winter. His UVB bulb was due for replacement but the lamp had been getting increasingly hard to find bulbs for. I decided to go with the Zoo Med name and the excellent reviews for the 10.0 UVB Terrarium bulb. A week later I received my new lamp and bulb. Within 5 minutes of setting it up on my 40 gallon long terrarium, Roomba became a happy active boy, more so than he was even with a new bulb for the old lamp he used. If you have a tortoise I highly recommend this lamp! I bought the 20-inch hood which takes the 18-inch bulb. It is not bulky and seems to be sturdily made. I am thrilled with my purchase and so is Roomba!
