    no offence,but lighting companys arent going to say folk have kept dirunal reptiles for years with out exposure to uv lighting and had zero issues,they only tell you what you want to hear as they want you to buy there crap

    uv lighting isnt a miracle light,they dont get calcium from it at all,all its claimed they do is aid in the apsorbtion of calcium

    use uv lighting and feed a poor diet and u get the exact same results,dietry supplementation is of way more importance,even the sun cant prevent the results of poor diet

    what about nocturnal lizards,noy exposed to the sun,how the heck do they survive,cant see pissy lil gex munchin down rodents,yet they do fine in the wild


    uv lighting isnt a miracle light,and its all to easy to blame the lack of its use as the cause of reptiles suffering mbd ect
