The UVB_Meter_Owners group is a group formed to test common UVB sources for keeping reptiles. Testing is done with Solarmeter UV meters primarily. Testing data includes both Mercury Vapor, Fluorescent bulbs, UVB transmission thru glass/screen, and readings on natural sunlight. We look into both the UVB output, decay over time, and longevity of the bulbs. New data is constantly coming to light in this rapidly growing area of reptile husbandry.
Ownership of a UV Meter is not required to join this group. The group is formed to encourage learning
about one of the most important aspects of care for our reptiles. The keepers on the group share a large variety of species under their care.. UVA and UVC data is also discussed.
New members are encouraged to read thru some of the archives and check the files section for important data that has been previously gathered.
We are a friendly, open group. Discussion should be kept friendly and professional. Flames and trolls will not be tolerated. Advertising and spam is not allowed. Off-Topic posts should be labeled as OT and preferably reptile related. Questions?
