Ok, I got the 2 36 inch reptisun 5.0 lamps, and a double lamp that i am assembling. Is it ok if it faces outwards, on the wall of the cage, or do I need it angled...also, do I need to put some kind of cage wire around it, to protect the bulbs??
I could mount the device on its side, as there are screw holes there too, this is an industrial type lamp...though I have also taken into consideration of placing lots of rubberized tape on the corners of the metal case. If i had it facing downwards he would have to lay underneath it.
not completely sure what works best. I would go with the mercury vapor lamp, but I have heard they can be dangerous.
Also, UVB meters, I heard they start around $160, can they be purchased in store, or do they have to be ordered?
