The high-quality compact with a long service life: ZOO WITH REPTISUN MINI COMPACT FLUORESCENT! Super small dimensions and high performance.
Item number RK1181B
Compact lamps have been able to celebrate a real triumphal march with the terrarium lighting. No wonder, because electricity costs have now become a real factor in reptile husbandry. With the Zoo Med Reptisun Mini Compact Fluorescent we offer you a high-quality terrarium lamp that shows you how far compact lamp technology has been developed for terrariums. The Zoo Med Reptisun Mini Compact Fluorescent is a real power mini among the compact models and this is evident even in its small dimensions! Only 13 cm in height (the E27 standard thread is already included here) provide a lot of space savings and especially in smaller terrariums the Zoo Med Reptisun Mini Compact Fluorescent with economical 13 watts is a great alternative. Isn't that at the expense of the UV output? No! No! No! Because the Zoo Med Reptisun Mini Compact Fluorescent comes from genuine quality production and does not have to hide from any other compact terrarium lamp. The yield of UV-A (stimulates the natural behaviour of reptiles) and UV-B (vital to prevent deficiency diseases and malformations of bones and armour) is exemplary and the Zoo Med Reptisun Mini Compact Fluorescent also produces plenty of good daylight suitable for reptiles. But the Zoo Med Reptisun Mini Compact Fluorescent is also damn good in terms of durability and service life. With a daily irradiation duration of about 10 - 12 hours, this UV compact lamp has an operating duration of about 12 months. However, the Zoo Med Reptisun Mini Compact Fluorescent should actually be replaced afterwards, as the UV values will then no longer be sufficient. Here's a tip: Simply make a note of the day your UV compact lamp was first put into operation and you're on the safe side. You don't need a ballast to operate the Zoo Med Reptisun Mini Compact Fluorescent - it's already built into your new compact lamp.
What is the best way to use the Zoo Med Reptisun Mini Compact Fluorescent? Regardless of whether you choose the 5.0 or 10.0 version of this UV compact lamp - the ideal distance for UV irradiation of reptiles is about 15 - 20 cm from the animal. However, you should always keep a minimum distance of 10 cm. The Zoo Med Reptisun Mini Compact Fluorescent should of course not be used as the sole UV lamp for medium-sized and larger terrariums, but the compact lamp is a recommendable addition to a UV area lamp, for example. Since the Zoo Med Reptisun Mini Compact Fluorescent does not generate any significant heat, the UV compact lamp should not be regarded as a heating element. Corresponding heat lamps or other heating elements should therefore be operated additionally. But this is definitely not a disadvantage, because the Zoo Med Reptisun Mini Compact Fluorescent hardly disturbs a well-adjusted temperature gradient in the terrarium.
The outstanding quality of Zoo Med terrarium lamps convinces zoos, veterinary surgeons and professional breeders every day and the Zoo Med Reptisun Mini Compact Fluorescent is an absolutely reliable piece of terrarium technology! This UV compact lamp is available in 2 different versions:
- Zoo Med Reptisun Mini Compact Fluorescent 5.0 (for tropical reptiles with medium UV requirements)
- Zoo Med Reptisun Mini Compact Fluorescent 10.0 (for reptiles from deserts and steppes with high UV requirements such as turtles or bearded dragons)
