Is this a good deal? Looking for my future Hermanns. I know a higher UV for shorter periods is ideal as it would be outdoors, but I can’t find a 12% UV arcadia bulb. If I can find it I can always switch it out…

I'm a new member. You can buy an Arcadia fixture with T5 tube or just the Tube from Reptile Basics, they ship fast. I have also dealt with Dragonhaus Enclosures, he sells another brand T5 Tubes for reptiles and T5 fixtures.

I can't tell in the photo if that's an HO T5 or not.
A non HO 7% would be a pretty minimal provider of UVB.
I've seen HO 6% and 12% Arcadia. But never a 7%.
Also, it's just 12". What size is your enclosure?
I don't think that this is what you need.

Oh, you’re right! Didn’t even notice it wasn’t HO! Scratching this

This looks better I think?

As Zeropilot asked about how big your enclosure is, you don't want to get too small of a UV light. I have a 4 foot closed chamber and use a 36 inch UV light. Good price though and that's the T5 fixture you want and tube.

Enclosure is 4 feet long with a greenhouse tent style top - i’ll find a 36 inch then! Thank you :)
