I use UVA bulbs for my work in tanning violins, the tubes are not cheap and don't last long before the UVA strength lessens.
Probably better to watch a good video on the relevant lens disassembly and fungus cleaning with cold cream etc, looks fairly straight forward
and if you bought a nice old 50mm f/1.2 cheap with fungus then probably well worth learning how to clean it.

Thanks Ben. If I had a Pentax 50 mm f/1.2 lens with fungus, and I determined that the fungus was not spreading, I'd use it and enjoy it and not risk it ending as a basket case by trying to move the fungus. If I wanted to practice disassembling a lens to remove fungus, I wouldn't try it on such a classic lens. Maybe I'd try it on a Canon or Nikon lens.
