Hey Lou,

I know some of the lightning can hurt chameleons eyes. I also use repti-sun 10.0 on all my tanks an personally have never seen a problem with my collareds eyes. The only eye problems I have ever seen in all the years messing with lizards is from sand , or a resp infection that causes them to close it temporality. I do also take my lizards outside weather permitting in spring summer and fall, for natural sun-light.

I stopped using the mercury vapors, maybe they are better, but I think they get way to hot, I can't even touch the light fixture when a MVB is is on for any length of time. So I stick to the f- tubes as well.

I know we have spoken about collareds eyes and problems in emails, but I just have not seen any problems with eyes. I have had more problems over the years with wild caughts and internal parasites than anything else.

It certainly is better to breed your own captive breds from your own groups rather than to bring in wild caughts, if at all possible. That sometimes causes problems for people.
