Trixie Reptiland Desert Pro 12.0 T8 UV-B Fluorescent Tube - The First Choice for Desert Terrariums

Fluorescent tubes are still one of the most important factors in terrariums when it comes to optimal background lighting. This is not least due to the fact that the "Langen" manage with ease to illuminate terrariums evenly along their entire length. Of course this also applies to the Trixie Reptiland Desert Pro 12.0 UV-B fluorescent tube and there is even more to this low-cost alternative for terrarium tubes for desert terrariums! Because the Trixie Reptiland Desert Pro 12.0 UV-B fluorescent tube is a real light powerhouse and provides plenty of vital UV-A and UV-B radiation in the terrarium. Especially a lack of UV-B radiation often becomes a real health problem for reptiles living in deserts and active during the day! Sure, because desert areas are mostly characterized by long, sunny days with high temperatures and many reptiles are "programmed" exactly on it!". They need long, extensive sunbaths. UV-B radiation has a vital function: it stimulates the so-called vitamin D3 synthesis, which is essential for healthy bone or armour construction. And only by sufficient UV-B irradiation can dangerous deficiency diseases be encouraged. Therefore: A lot of UV-B! When it comes to basic supplies, a Trixie Reptiland Desert Pro 12.0 UV-B fluorescent tube is the best choice! However, you should still install additional UV and heat lamps (UV surface emitters) for a desert terrarium in order to ensure optimum care of your patients.

In addition to UV-B, UV-A also plays an important role in reptile husbandry! UV-A light enables reptiles to "see properly". This is because reptiles - unlike their keepers - have a fourth color receptor in their eye, which makes their "color vision" clearly superior to ours. In order to perceive the full colour spectrum, however, the terrarium lighting must emit UV-A and the Trixie Reptiland Desert Pro 12.0 UV-B fluorescent tube does this to a high degree. But UV-A has other, very desirable effects! UV-A radiation increases the appetite, makes reptiles more vital and promotes reproductive instinct. Right on the edge, UV-A is also a real accelerator for the growth of terrarium plants. Also important: the quality of the actual daylight. Here there is fluorescent tube is by far not equal to fluorescent tube and the differences are sometimes considerable. With the Trixie Reptiland Desert Pro 12.0 UV-B fluorescent tube, however, everything is fine. And good means good: A light temperature of 7500 K and a colour rendering value of class 1A. This results in a perfect terrarium light, as desert-dwelling reptiles love it. Also top: The service life of the Trixie Reptiland Desert Pro 12.0 UV-B fluorescent tube only needs to be replaced after an average operating time of approx. 3600 hours, as the UV output is then no longer sufficient. For such a strong UV tube a fantastic value - and you will notice that not least in your own wallet! And if you want to combine - go ahead! For example, a Trixie Reptiland Desert Pro 12.0 UV-B fluorescent tube can be perfectly combined with a 2.0 tube or a 6.0 variant. Thus you increase the output of daylight and healthy UV-A again clearly. You see: With the Trixie Reptiland Desert Pro 12.0 UV-B fluorescent tube you get an all-round carefree tube into your terrarium.
