I know there's SPECIAL EXPENSIVE UVB hoods that you can buy for the UVB florecent light tubes. But what type of hood do you REALLY need to hold the tubes. What kind of Ballast is required? Socket, industrial lighting etc?
All and any help is much appreciated. Also websites or "home depot, menards, lowes" sorta stores. Thanks a ton! Eki's getting his UVB soon! YAY! ;D

T12 is the suggested size for a UVB bulb and an adult ig. That's what the 48" bulbs are...they say it right on the bulb. There is a broader selection in the "self-wiring" jobs...thank goodness hubby knows that much! If it was me doing it...pre-wired is the only way to go!

Hopefully Sunday all of this will be taken care of. Bulb buying, hood buying and all that jazz. And maybe a new tank even though he has plenty of space. We're going to be getting a bigger one. Plus we found what looks like a deal on PVC pipe. So we'll be starting to build a new habitat. YAY!
