Carolina Custom Cages Reptile 34″ T5HO UVB Standard Light Fixture



amzn.to/3rJSY37 – Carolina Custom Cages Reptile 34″ T5HO UVB Standard Light Fixture.

This fixture ended up being a solution to providing UVB to my beardies unique 48″x18x16″ enclosure. I needed a fixture that would hang inside it and look nice.
I emailed Carolina Custom cages with some questions about their longer fixture, and they were very responsive and suggested I get the 34″. It works great in the 48″ long tank – the other would have been too long.

This fixture ended up being a solution to providing UVB to my beardies unique 48″x18x16″ enclosure. I needed a fixture that would hang inside it and look nice.
I emailed Carolina Custom cages with some questions about their longer fixture, and they were very responsive and suggested I get the 34″. It works great in the 48″ long tank – the other would have been too long.
When I received the fixture, it looked nice, but wasnt as sturdy as I expected.The glue that held the base to the reflector was allowing a gap between them and my lamp was flickering for some reason.
The curvature of the reflector was was not constant and it looked crooked on the base and bad in the cage. I contacted CCC and they said to just return it – no problem – they were happy to help.
I was in the process of taking the tube out of the cage for return when my phone rang, and while I stepped away, my dome lamp (which I had swung over to the side and above the fixture) actually melted the reflector part of the fixture.
The 75 watt bulb was about 4″ away from the T5 fixture and it ruined it – I couldnt hardly return the fixture! My boyfriend and I goofed around with the thing and finally got it straightened out so it wasnt too noticeable.
It actually looks quite nice in the enclosure now and works very well. I am glad that I kept it. Just take care to keep the reflector away from heat.
I was a little nervous when I saw all the reviews saying the light flickered and doesn’t work properly. We got one anyways and it does flicker if the light bulb isn’t in correctly. Once we messed around with it a bit it was fine. Working great!
I have a Zen habitat for my bearded dragon which is a 2ft by 4ft enclosure. This works perfect! I just used a few zip ties to secure it to the inside of the cage at the top.
Now I was under the impression when I purchased this that it came with the light bulb. It does not! This is just the fixture. However it worked out well for me.
I just purchased a bulb separately.
