Ini researching which bulbs would be best for our tortoise I found this website with information on too much of a "good thing" causing photo-kerato-conjunctivitis in turtles, tortoises, skinks, and beardies etc.

We ran into this with our Beardie last year...never knew what was going on.

Go to www.uvguide.co.uk
and www.uvguide.co.uk/phototherapy/phosphor-tests.htm

It looks like the products are being modified to reduce this initial Burn through problem so that our little guys do not have trouble in the future. And the companies have been very responsive to the past information that was sent to them...

Happy basking!:cool:
