ReptiSun 5.0 UVB Bulbs supply an amazing 5.0% UVB and up to 30% UVA; outputs active UVB up to 12" from the bulb's surface.

NOTE: Zoo Med is currently upgrading the design and packaging of the bulbs. Some bulbs will be changing from T-12 to T-8 bulbs. We will be updating the site as our inventory changes to the new design. T-8 Bulbs will work in T-12 fixtures, they also have more lumens and require less energy to run so they are more energy efficient.

Bulbs are compatible with the following fixtures:

  • Slimline Reptile Fixture
  • Combo-Light
  • The Slider Reptile Hood
  • Fluorescent Strip Lights

Contains the highest amounts of both UVB and UVA wavelengths. The UVB wavelength helps to prevent or reverse Metabolic Bone Disease commonly seen in captive reptiles. Strengthens and improves shell growth on all captive turtles and tortoises. UVA wavelength increases appetite, physical activity, helps to induce reproductive behaviors and is beneficial to the psychological well-being of captive reptiles and amphibians.

Safer than adding powdered or liquid synthetic D3 supplements, as the UVB wavelength allows all reptiles the ability to regulate their own Vitamin D3 levels by endogenous synthesis as they would in nature! Eliminates the risk of vitamin D3 overdose (highly toxic) from synthetic sources. Wavelength penetrates a full 10-12" from the bulb's surface. We use pure quartz glass sleeves. The bulb's UVA/UVB wavelength remains effective for 1 to 1-1/2 years. (Replace bulbs yearly).
