Zoo Med ReptiSun 10.0 UVB T5HO 24 watt 22” Reptile Lighting Fluorescent Tube Bundle with Carolina Custom Cages' Chlorhexidine Solution 2%; 1 Refill Makes 32 oz. of Working Solution

Approx. price: $47.

Key Features:

  • The best fluorescent tube that we’ve ever used for our reptiles’ UVB requirements! Other tubes that we tried either don’t have adequate output in the beginning or they degrade much faster than should be expected. This UVB is necessary for your reptile’s synthesis of vitamin D3, which is essential for the effective metabolism of dietary calcium in its bones and blood.
  • Some reptiles require more or less UVB than others. A UVB 10.0 Tube means that 10% of the tube’s output is UVB. 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 (“silkies”).
  • This tube fits 2 of the T5HO fixtures offered by Carolina Custom Cages; the Reptile T5HO 22" Standard Fixture & Reflector and the Reptile T5HO 22" Fixture & Reflector with Basking Light Assembly. This second unit is able to provide for UVB and basking requirements in one streamlined fixture that is easy to mount underneath your cage's top screen mesh. Animal should be no closer than 10” directly under the fixture and no closer than 6” 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 – just add water! This is the best cleaner for your reptile’s habitat; used and recommended by exotic animal vets for cleaning your cages and other habitat items. Basically, you spray and wipe and then if your reptile licks where you just cleaned, it won't hurt them. Great for daily maintenance cleaning as well as monthly cleaning from top to bottom.
  • See also our Carolina Custom Cages’ listing for “Chlorhexidine Solution 2%; 32 oz. Sprayer, plus 2 refills” and our listing for “Chlorhexidine Solution 2%; 3 refills make 32 oz. each of working solution”. Carolina Custom Cages is a division of Carolina Designer Dragons, Inc.; a boutique breeder of bearded dragons, selections on our website.
