    Yes, every single one of them.
    I even Googled it. Not one American pet store online has it in stock.
    They are all gone.

    Are any vendors "expecting some soon"?

    That I'm not sure about.
    I left my email on a couple of their sites "to be informed when they get them back in stock".
    I do believe these bulbs and fixtures are made overseas, so it might be awhile with the current situation.
    I can't believe they are sold out everywhere though. Bummer.

    Scooby is doing much better now. He's walking fine again. I have very gradually introduced calcium back into his diet. Because I haven't been feeding him as much (he was overweight), I think his stomach has shunken internally because he's not wanting food as much as he use to (he would never turn down food).

    Anyway, a couple times now, in his moist hide, I have seen this tiny, almost pine green spot on his wet paper towel. There have been one or two occasions in the past when I wasn't changing his moist paper towels often enough that it appeared some tiny mold spot would appear, but I have been changing it every week now, so I don't think this is mold. So what do you think? Is it possible some dark pine green stuff is coming out of him somewhere? There is nothing in his tank that would cause this, and I have only seen this phenom in his moist hide.
    Are those dark pine green spots continuing?

    I'm happy that Scooby has made a good recovery and has lost weight! How about sharing before and after Scooby photos?

    Hi there. Sorry for being late to respond. There is a retailer here in Canada that it looks like they would have the Arcadia Shade Dweller fixture and bulb in stock. Perhaps they ship to the USA? Here is the link: https://www.reptilesrus.ca/arcadia-s...it-110v-7-uvb/

    As Elizabeth mentioned, I would try using the light above the warm area first. That is where I have my light currently. As to my lighting setup. Please see below for the comments I had in another thread that I will just re-post here for convenience.

    "I was just recently in correspondence with Dr. Fran Baines about the adequacy of using the Zoo Med Repti Sun 10.0 Mini Compact bulb in a 20 long enclosure with an 8.5" dome reflector with a white coating. Dr. Baines, based on recent testing feels that this setup for UVB may not offer quite adequate Vitamin D3 levels in and of itself. I myself have been supplementing with Zoo med calcium with D3 one to two times a month. My gecko has not exhibited any signs of disease after just over one year. However, I should add that my feeder insects have an exceedingly "good" diet that may have been making up for some of the shortcomings of not enough D3. (Addendum May 12. Recently, she did recommend I perhaps add a D3 feeding or two in addition to what I was giving before while I am using the Zoo Med 10.0 mini compact bulb.)

    I feed my crickets and mealworms ground up ADULT Bearded Dragon pellets (powdered) as well as slices of zucchini and carrots, the crickets also get Repashy Bug Burger and Flukers Cricket quencher with calcium (replaced often so it does not dry out.) Dr. Baines recommends that when it comes time to replace my Zoo Med 10.0 Mini bulb that I should possibly switch to the Arcadia Shade Dweller 7.0 UVB bulb with 12" long enclosure to better ensure UVB dispersal to my gecko through the mesh screen and the distance I am dealing with in the enclosure (10"-11" basking site from UVB bulb.)

    For my DHP (Deep Heat Projector) bulb, I use a Zilla 8.5" dome with white coating inside and it is on a thermostat that allows me to control two separate settings. One for daytime and one for night time."

    I hope that helps.
