Item number RK1183D
When it comes to high-quality and reptile-friendly lighting in the terrarium, Zoo Med products enjoy an excellent reputation worldwide - even among professional breeders or in zoological gardens. With the Zoo Med ReptiSun 5.0 T5 High Output UV-B fluorescent tube, the Zoo Med ReptiSun 5.0 T5 is sure to once again impressively show why. The modern T5 technology in combination with the high Zoo Med manufacturing standard has resulted in a high output terrarium tube that belongs to the absolute top class in terms of durability, efficiency and performance. And how strong is that exactly? Very strong! Or to make it clearer: A Zoo Med ReptiSun 5.0 T5 High Output UV-B fluorescent tube creates twice the amount of UV radiation and daylight compared to a conventional Zoo Med T8 terrarium tube. And the energy consumption is the same! Impressive, isn't it? Especially in the UV range this strong performance is a real blessing for your reptiles. Tropical reptiles often need high doses of UV-A and UV-B. What's the matter with you? Well, UV-A is critical for reptiles to see things around them in real colors. With the right amount of UV-A, reptiles get really vital, their appetite improves and they show their natural behaviour. By the way: Your terrarium plants will also thrive well under the influence of a lot of UV-A. UV-B, on the other hand, is the key to health and prevents many deficiency diseases. Reptiles need UV-B for the vital vitamin D3 synthesis. Only in this way can bones and armour grow healthily and malformations be prevented.
The Zoo Med ReptiSun 5.0 T5 High Output UV-B fluorescent tube is designed for reptiles from tropical regions. Day geckos, anolis, water agamas or chameleons love the light of this terrarium tube. Attention: Like all UV-B tubes, the Zoo Med ReptiSun 5.0 T5 High Output UV-B fluorescent tube is only suitable for snakes with a generous distance well above the minimum distance. In general, the tube is suitable for reptiles up to a body length of about 60 cm. The irradiation distance must always be at least 15 cm from the animal and should not exceed a maximum distance of approx. 60 cm. This is the best way for the effect to unfold and for your terrarium animals to be cared for in a species-appropriate way. And how long does the terrarium tube last? Long time! If we take a daily lighting duration of 10 - 12 hours as a basis, the Zoo Med ReptiSun 5.0 T5 High Output UV-B fluorescent tube delivers its full performance for at least 12 months! You should then replace the tube, however, otherwise the UV values may no longer be within the necessary range. Simply write down the date on which you installed the terrarium tube - so you can keep track.
