    ... moved to LED ...

    Hey raggie, if you'd rather have this in "Special Application Lighting" or maybe "Fixed Lighting" (?) instead, just let me (or another staff member) know.

    uv-b is 280-315nm range, leds will be very expensive if you compare watt for watt with florescent tubes. i'm sure you can find those tubes in most pet stores that sell reptiles

    I'm having trouble imagining that you will find anything like this as a screw in light bulb. What would be the market? Fluorescent naturally is good for making UV. If you look at this link:

    These people have some herp lights. Not exactly what your looking for but Mme. beardie should like it.

    There are UVB LEDs on the market now but not in the form of a finished lightbulb yet. I recently bought some to experiment with for my fluorescent mineral hobby. They're pretty weak compared to UVB fluorescent lamps so it would take a lot of them to produce enough output to stimulate Vitamin D production in your bearded dragons. Such a bulb would probably be in the $150-$300 range. Fluorescents are still your best bang for the buck for shorter UV wavelengths for now.
