I have never used any exoterra UVB lights before and i need to buy my turtles a new UVB light and fixture cause mine just broke but the only brand that i can get are from exoterra.
Please recommend me a good UVB light preferably a bulb not tube cause i cant find any shop that sells a fixture for that and mine just broke.
If you are also using the product that you recommend and you have some tips or anything that i should know please share it.
Ohh.. And any thought on exoterra MVB?
Should i get that instead?

Just incase needed, i have a 70 gallon tank with basking area around 20"x 18"

The solar glo gets pretty good reviews on Amazon. I have not used this bulb but it should work just fine. Remember to check the basking area temp and adjust the light accordingly. About 15" from the basking area should work for the 125w model.

You will need one with a porcelain socket.
