    I have looked everywhere and cant find any aussie online stores that sell them (24" 18w fitting). If I cant get any advice im going to have to go into the pet shop and spend $80 on an aquarium fitting and another $60~ on the uvb.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated,
    thanks :D

    bunnings $20 and easy to wire up and install your self! (best to get advice from a sparky though if you are unsure)

    I went into bunnings but their fittings had incorrect wattage for the reptile bulbs? What stores did you go to?
     
  5. the standard one at bunnings should do the trick , i use them all the time , maybe you have to change the starter to a lower wattage ? but pretty sure they are usually 18-36 or 40 watt as a standard starter

    Why don't you go to Reptile City which is located along Beach Road, Christies Beach, phone:81861951, Michel or Jason, can help you out for what ever you are looking for thats if you are in Adelaide metro good luck.

    All you really need is a 24inche long Batton Holder for a UV Tube.

    reptile city can get them but i were you i would go to m and m electrical or l and h and buy them. they are 55 bucks each i think and sometimes they have to order them. i got a few about 3 weeks ago. electric ballast is more. they are a little pricey cause they are an odd size. bunnings in adelaide dont sell them :(

    which bunnings? are they the batterns that are 900mm long?
