What they don't tell you is that you don't need a reptile-specific basking bulb. A regular household (non-CFL) bulb will provide plenty of heat just like these bulbs. Yes, I still use them - but I get them cheap online. Incredibly overpriced in the stores.

Does provide a tighter beam in comparison to a regular bulb - but, again, not necessary.

Pros: Provides Heat

Cons: Overpriced

Great lamp, good cost

posted 5 years ago

I got this at our local PetsMart, and have really gotten my money's worth. I thought the lamp would burn out after a week or two, but it has been months now and it is still going strong. We even leave it in for multiple hours a day. The only issue we had was with a cheapo 15 gallon tank that had plastic along the top (but it looked like metal). The plastic melted within a few hours of using the lamp, so be careful where the lamp is pointing and what you have around it.

Pros: Perfect for basking reptiles

Cons: Can melt plastic tops on tanks
