Zoo Med T5 HO ReptiSun 10.0 UVB, 12"


CLOSED UNTIL FRIDAY

We apologize for the inconvenience, but our website will be shut down until Friday due to an increase in order issues and delays. We are doing our best to get orders out within 1-2 business days, but unfortunately we are now delayed by up to 3-5 days. To minimize the amount of negative reviews and experiences, we have had to make the tough decision of closing until Friday the 27th. At that time we will again be processing orders within 1-3 days until we shut down on December 14th. We sincerely apologize, and we hope to come into 2021 as strong as ever! ❤️

UVB is an essential wavelength naturally found in sunlight, and is beneficial for most — if not all — reptiles. UVB is critical to helping your pet’s bones stay healthy and strong, and plays a role in a variety of other essential functions.

The Zoo Med T5 HO ReptiSun 10.0 UVB is a T5 HO linear fluorescent bulb that is twice as strong as standard T8 ReptiSun 10.0 bulbs, enabling them to provide correct levels of UVB to high-UVB reptiles housed in larger enclosures. This high-quality bulb is made in Germany and used (and recommended) by zoos, veterinarians, and top reptile professionals.

Instructions for Use:

Install the 12" Zoo Med T5 HO ReptiSun 10.0 UVB in a 14" Zoo Med ReptiSun T5 HO Terrarium Hood and place over the basking area. This bulb tends to perform best with high-UVB reptiles in terrestrial (wide) terrariums around 24-30" long.

Replace the Zoo Med T5 HO ReptiSun 10.0 UVB every 12 months to maintain performance. For best results, use with a Zoo Med Digital Digital UV Index Radiometer or Solarmeter 6.5.

Different reptiles have different UVB requirements. Research your particular species to determine what UVI it needs in its basking area.

Distance is measured from the tip of the bulb to the basking area or reptile. UVI estimations are approximate. Note that UVI is reduced by 30-40% when the UVB bulb is placed over mesh screen.
