Mega-Ray's UV Flood Lamps, also known as Metal Halide Lamps, have been rigorously tested in the field for almost 2 years and are continuing to be tested at one of the leading zoos in the USA.
These bulbs have proven to be useful in D3 production for 12-18 months with little loss in brightness (LUX) or in UVB-A.
These bulbs are extremely bright and are much more like the natural sun after 8 or 9 am in the morning and should therefore not be considered for use for the complete 12hr photoperiod, and should only be used in the overhead position.
8 hours a day is more than sufficient for the new Mega-Ray Halide. Lamps in basking areas should be on multiple timers to allow a more natural lighting effect. For example, Mega-Ray recommend Halogen on in basking area at 7 am, Halide and additional heat (halogen or heat projector) on at 8:30 am, 5000K tube daylight fluorescents at 10 am, and off in the opposite order during the afternoon. This will reduce stress and prolong the life of any captive creature.
