Zoo Med Reptisun UVB 5.0 T8 Light 36in Information

With the right type of reptile lighting, you are actually able to keep your pets safe from certain diseases, which are usually due to over-exposure to the radiance. Knowing this, you will fare well when your terrarium is equipped with the Zoo Med Reptisun UVB 5.0 Light from Pet Store, which is meant for the very purpose that has been mentioned above. This comes in a length of thirty-six inches, suitable for larger sizes of cases.

Like other forms of lighting, this product is meant to bring warmth to your pet. However, what’s different about this particular fixture is that it can control the levels of heat that it emits. It produces the right amounts of UVB rays, which, in spite of its power to penetrate through several layers of atmosphere that may be present in your terrarium, can keep the amount at a bare minimum to prevent or lessen the effects of bone diseases. Plus, it can be used as a great decoration for any glass case, specifically because of the cool beam that it establishes.

When it comes to reptile lighting, the Zoo Med Reptisun UVB 5.0 Light should always be on the top of your list, not only because of the health benefits that it brings, but also because of the beauty that it provides to your terrarium.

Zoo Med ReptiSun 5.0 UVB Bulbs Provide the exact band of rays within the UVB spectrum for maximum vitamin D3 synthesis and calcium absorption. ReptiSun 5.0 UVB Bulbs supply an amazing 5.0% UVB and up to 30% UVA; outputs active UVB up to 12in from the bulb's surface. Contains the highest amounts of both UVB and UVA wavelengths. The UVB wavelength helps to prevent or reverse Metabolic Bone Disease in green iguanas as well as other species of lizards in captivity. Strengthens and improves shell growth on all captive turtles and tortoises. UVA wavelength increases appetite, physical activity, helps to induce reproductive behaviors and is beneficial to the psychological well-being of captive reptiles and amphibians. Safer than adding powdered or liquid synthetic D3 supplements, as the UVB wavelength allows all reptiles the ability to regulate their own Vitamin D3 levels by endogenous synthesis as they would in nature! Eliminates the risk of vitamin D3 overdose (highly toxic) from synthetic sources. Wavelength penetrates a full 10-12in from the bulb's surface. We use pure quartz glass sleeves. The bulb's UVA/UVB wavelength remains effective for 1 to 1-1/2 years. (Replace bulbs yearly). Use with lizards (other than iguanas), to help prevent bone problems, as well as turtles and tortoises to improve shell growth. Increases appetite, activity and breeding. Bulbs are compatible with the following fixtures: Slimline Reptile Fixture Combo-Light The Slider Reptile Hood Flourescent Strip Lights
