Fluorescent Bulbs

Fluorescent UVB Bulbs fit into most standard T8 orT12 sockets, allowing them to be used in most standard aquarium light hoods or shop lights . The length of the bulb allows it to provide light and UV over a wide area. These bulbs produce both UVA and UVB, which greatly improve the well being and health of captive animals. Bulbs come in 2.0, 5.0, and 10.0 models, with the higher numbers emitting more UV.Fluorescent UVB Bulbs should be changed every 6 months.

     
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         
 

2.0 Fluorescent Bulbs produce a lower amount of UVB light than 5.0 or 10.0 models. 2.0 Compact Fluorescent Bulbs are ideal for those pet reptiles and amphibians that utilize low amounts of UVB light in nature, such as crested geckos or many frogs.

 

   

5.0 Fluorescent Bulbs are ideal for those pet reptiles and amphibians that receive a moderate amount of UVB light in nature, such as green iguanas, many chameleons, green anoles, and many other tropical reptiles and amphibians.

 
    10.0 Fluorescent Bulbs are perfect for those pet reptiles and amphibians that are exposed to full sun in nature. Such animals typically inhabit the desert, and require intense exposure to high levels of UVB radiation. Some commonly kept pet reptiles and amphibians that would benefit from the use of a 10.0 Compact Fluorescent bulb would be bearded dragons, uromastyx, and other commonly kept desert dwelling lizards.
