    So I have been looking around to find the details on these bulbs. I have multiple 4ft light fixtures so I have purchased many of these bulbs (bulk discount). However, I am not finding any specs on that size. Lots of info on them up to 2ft but, even the website doesn't include the 54w 4 footer. They don't even indicate the lumens of visible light it emits. (that or I am blind and not seeing it anywhere)

    Anyone use these for their Tegu or other reptiles? If so, how far do you keep them? Figured I would ask before I went and spent a few hundred bucks on a UV meter.

    Thanks!

    Never mind, I found the answer.

    In case anyone else needs the answer....The brightness of UV does not increase with the size of the bulb. A 2ft bulb and 4ft bulb need be to the same distance from your pet. The 4ft bulb just covers more area.
