There is an inordinate amount of information about UVB lighting and reptiles. I've always used flourescent but am considering switching to mercury-vapor bulbs. I am looking for acutal experience with these bulbs (no, "I heard from a friend who has a girlfriend with a cousin that once met some guy who knew a person that had one explode on them." kinda thing). I have heard that they have a tendency to blow out if moved while on, and that they may actually give too much UVB. I have also read one report of chameleons being rendered less fertile by these bulbs. Please tell me of your experiences with these bulbs. I have 3 dragons that need UVB. Thanks!!!
