Lucky Reptile UV Sun T5 UV Fluorescent Tube
With the Lucky Reptile UV Sun T5 UV fluorescent tube, a real technical revolution entered the terrarium. Lucky Reptile was one of the first manufacturers in terraristics to offer a genuine UV fluorescent tube based on the energy-saving and powerful T5 tube technology. High Output is the magic formula here, and that means nothing other than extremely high efficiency in the emission of vital UV rays at significantly lower operating costs compared to conventional T8 terrarium tubes with UV radiation. In addition, the Lucky Reptile UV Sun T5 UV fluorescent tube has a much longer service life than normal UV tubes. All in all, this results in massive savings and ensures that the T5 tube technology increasingly displaces the classic "thick tubes" from the terrarium!
The outstanding feature of the Lucky Reptile UV Sun T5 UV fluorescent tube is its absolutely balanced UV spectrum. We can rightly say of this UV terrarium tube: it optimally supplies your reptiles! In contrast to many other UV fluorescent tubes for the terrarium, the Lucky Reptile UV Sun T5 UV fluorescent tube covers the incredibly important UV spectral range between 290 and 305 nanometers. What do you mean, you don't know? Well, an essential basis for the healthy development of reptiles is the so-called vitamin D3 synthesis. This is of elementary importance for bone formation and in order to control the synthesis, precisely the UV spectral range mentioned is absolutely necessary! Here the Lucky Reptile UV Sun T5 has the UV fluorescent tube clearly the nose in front and offers everything that reptiles with a higher UV requirement (such as bearded dragons, turtles, iguanas, etc.) need. Amazing, amazing: In contrast to many UV fluorescent tubes, the Lucky Reptile UV Sun T5 UV fluorescent tube not only features excellent UV values but also a very good daylight spectrum (6,500 K) and an outstanding colour rendering index of 90 Ra. Real quality features for a UV-B fluorescent tube. The Lucky Reptile UV Sun T5 UV fluorescent tube is a real recommendation for day-active reptiles with a corresponding UV requirement. The distance between fluorescent tube and reptiles should always be between 20 and 50 cm, so that the terrarium animals are optimally irradiated. If you keep reptiles in your terrarium that have an increased need for UV-B irradiation - including desert-dwelling reptiles - you should still provide an additional UV source. A UV surface emitter such as Lucky Reptile Bright Sun can be used to provide reptiles with a localised sunbathing area that terrarium animals can visit as needed. The best operating unit for the Lucky Reptile UV Sun T5 UV fluorescent tube is the original Lucky Reptile Light Strip T5 Power operating unit, but please note that this must be used without protective glass, as UV radiation cannot penetrate normal glass. Of course, you can also opt for another T5 operating unit - in this case, please make sure that the wattage of the UV fluorescent tubes is compatible with that of the operating unit.
