... But except for the tortoises most reptiles are kept in closed glass enclosures. Many times their owners try to reach a humidity of 80% at daytime at 40fireside3a

The UVB_Meter_Owners group is a group formed to test
common UVB sources for keeping reptiles. Testing is done with the
UVB meter 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 UVB 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 largevariety 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?
