    Default T5 lighting 5.0 vs. 10.0


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    I have two 18x18x24 tanks, one housing a crested gecko, one housing a Cuban False Chameleon (which is really an anole). The anole needs UVB. I am providing the crestie with it, just to be on the safe side, even though he may not need it.

    It's time to reorder bulbs for them. I will get ReptiSun T5's, but what is the difference between 5.0 and 10.0? Pangea carries both. Which do I need to order for which lizard?

    Didn't get an answer to this here, but I checked with a few reptile suppliers, and got differing answers. All said to get the 5.0 for my crestie, but some said to get the 10.0 for my CFC, which is really an anole. He is active during the day, and spends most of his time hanging out on a vine toward the top of the tank. I ended up getting the 10.0 for him, but am wondering if this is correct - and if it is, do I then dust his bugs in Calcium without d3?

    I think it may be worthwhile to dust the bugs in calcium with D3 to insure he gets enough, at least every other feeding.
