How long is your existing bulb if you have one? Or the fitting if you don't?
The fixture is a standard 36" flourescent double bulb fixture. I assume that having a UV bulb in one slot and a plant bulb in the other would be ok?

No problem, I'll include it just to see what happens. I know my other one liked to hang out on the water's edge with his head sticking out of the water when he wasn't hiding under the driftwood piece.

I was spot on then with the size, lol. :score: that particular bulb is £18 on seapets (.co.uk). Yeah running both lights will be fine. I have a similar setup and have the UVB in one and a moonlight in the other.
