Hey guys, been buying stuff for my new enclosure that is in the works. I was originally going to buy the Arcadia bulb, but because of availability I ended up going with the Zoo Med for the first round. I think I am still going to order an Arcadia. The bulb I got is a Zoo Med T5 10.0 HO. I also got a reflective fixture with it. I was just wondering if anybody has tried these, and what there results were. They claim the bulb is effective 18 to 36 in. I will be mounting it over a sulcata tortoise and wanted to know if I could get any recommendations on how high to mount it, and how many hours a day to run it summer versus winter. Will be getting no natural sun exposure here during the winter months, and summer months will be a couple hours every day to every other day. Thanks for any and all help.
