    It sounds like it's back to the meds until Sam nips this.

    Please verify ground temps in both Sam's warm dry hide and his warm moist hide as measred by the probe of a digital thermometer or a temp gun.

    The only "list" of UVB comparisons I have does not include Arcadia bulbs or tubes.

    I don't remember which one Dr. Baines personally uses for her leos. I believe she keeps any leos in large enclosures.

    As of 2018 Arcadia manufactures ShadeDweller lighting which is in tune with nocturnal and crepuscular lizards.

    Here are some lighting specs from a friend who has bred Phelsuma mad mads and other Phelsuma for years. UVB is especially important for many geckos including Phelsuma (day geckos), et cetera.

    #10---Some UVB : UVI ratings -- shared August 2017
    Ratio of UVB : UVI (UltraViolet Index)
    • Exo Terra compact fluorescent bulbs = 14
    • ***Zoo Med Reptisun compact fluorescent bulbs = 31
    • ***Zoo Med Reptisun fluorescent tubes (T 8 ) = 34
    • ***Arcadia D3 23W E27 - no rating available
    • Sunlight = ~40-50

    Elizabeth- You may be correct as far as her using long enclosures. I do recall her name and a picture of a long wooden enclosure.

    Sorry to hear this. Call the vet ASAP and inform her/ him of what’s happening. Sometimes they need a longer course of antibiotics. There’s a chance he may need further testing, such as a radiograph and bloodwork. I know how stressful it can be. Do a recheck of your temps as already mentioned with more than one source. There has been times when even high quality products have been inaccurate. This is why I’m so hesitant to recommend anything. I have always compared with 3 different types of humidity gauges and thermometers. Keep us updated

    I realize this is a very late update.
    Sam made a complete recovery, is back to a healthy weight and continues to eat regularly with enthusiasm.
    Thank you all for the advice and support.
