I have been reading the topic about bulbs with great interest as I am looking to replace my current bulb. I have an Arcadia UV Basking Lamp 80watt at present. It provides heat, light and UV. I would just like to check,if anyone could advise me, before I go ahead and purchase the megaray 100watt bulb that it would do the same, if not an even better job than the Arcadia 80watt. Also can anyone advise the life expectancy be it in hours or months of the megaray bulb. Thank you so much. The shop that I have always bought my supplies from and found to be most helpful with advise and guidance has unfortunately closed down.

In my opinion it WILL do a better job. Heat levels tend to be more stable and my own torts are more active when using megaray. I never use less than 100watts though, if it helps ;)

Thank you so much for your prompt reply. I'll order a megaray tomorrow.

I don't think you will regret it. I've tried them all over the years and had best results from megaray. No silly prices either, although some do seem to be reducing prices recently.
