Hi there,

 

I'm in the process of making my tortoise table bigger for my ever growing tortoise! But i'm having some problems with the strip lighting. I'm intending to use separate UVA and UVB strip light and I've found the ones I would like to buy, but I can't work how to fit them! I'm guessing they don't come with the fittings, but could someone direct me to where I can buy them?

 

These are the lights i'm going to buy....

I will also need reflectors but again, don't know how to fit these.

 

Thanks in advance for your help~

You need to buy starter units for each one, these are sold at the same place as the lamps. Is there a reason for buying two separate ones rather than one long one as these will bump the price up and to be honest I would not go for anything less than 10% and definitely not 2%. Reflectors just clip onto the tube to direct the rays downwards.

This is the starter unit you need, be sure to get the same wattage as the lamp you are using with it.
