Zoo Med ReptiSun 10.0 UVB T5HO 54W 46â Reptile Lighting Fluorescent Tube Bundle with Carolina Custom Cages Chlorhexidine Solution 2%; 1 Refill Makes 32 oz. of Working Solution Description
The best fluorescent tube that weâve ever used for our reptilesâ UVB requirements! Other tubes that we tried either donât have adequate output in the beginning or they degrade much faster than should be expected. This UVB is necessary for your reptileâs synthesis of vitamin D3, which is essential for the effective metabolism of dietary calcium in its bones and blood. Now protected by heavy duty Kraft thick-wall tube to compensate for Amazonâs shipping inadequacies and UPSâs irresponsible abuse. Some reptiles require more or less UVB than others. Bearded dragons and similar desert reptiles require more UVB and a 10.0 tube is the better choice. Green iguanas, anoles and similar jungle / forest reptiles require less UVB and a 5.0 tube is the better choice in smaller habitats when these reptiles are younger. We also prefer to use the 5.0 tube for our translucent bearded dragons and for our silkback bearded dragons (âsilkiesâ). This T5HO 46′ UVB 10.0 Reptile Fluorescent Tube fits the Carolina Custom Cages Reptile T5HO 46′ Standard Fixture & Reflector. This 46â model is perfect for oversized habitats greater than 48â in length; although it will ‘just fit’ diagonally in our 48Lx18Wx18H model Carolina Custom Cages Terrarium. Animal should be no closer than 10â directly under the fixture and no closer than 6â diagonally from the sides or ends of the fixture. We have also included a bottle of our Chlorhexidine Solution 2%; 1 refill makes 32 oz. of working solution â just add water! This is the best cleaner for your reptileâs habitat; used and recommended by exotic animal vets for cleaning your cages and other habitat items. We love this anti-bacterial, anti-fungal cleaner because it is easy to use and non-toxic to our reptiles. See also our Carolina Custom Cagesâ listing for âChlorhexidine Solution 2%; 32 oz.
