I think this needs to be pinned or put in the care sheet area so it can always be found!

Literally one of my all-time favorite resources. And this is where I've found the information about different bulbs and their UV output (just make sure to read all the information carefully as the original study was done in 2005 and there have been significant changes with several brands).

I wish they'd do some updates and make it a bit more accurate.

If you read carefully, a lot of the bulbs (at least the MVBs do - that's where I have done the majority of my research) have updated information as far as changes to their design, their starting output, etc, just not the detailed study information like before. That thing was hard core, and is still so helpful as far as understanding different types of bulbs, lighting patterns, decay, etc. I can't imagine the work that went into the 2005 study. Another one of those would be SWEET.
