Ok this may seem like a dumb question but I have a 24 inch uvb strip light that I’m going to be installing into my northern blue tongue’s future enclosure but for the hood that it will go into I’m not sure whether to buy the hood that says 24 inch or if I should buy a hood that’s one size up from that so that it will fit. Basically what I’m confused by is I’m wondering if I but the 24 inch hood then will it be the exact same size as the bulb and then the bulb won’t fit? Or am I just overthinking this and of course I should buy the 24 inch hood because it matches the size of the bulb? Someone please help me figure this out.
Check the specifications if you can see if lists actual lengths of fixture and hood and maybe that will help you decide.
