Lucky Reptile Bright Sun Turtle 100W

Note: this product requires a Lucky Reptile Bright Sun Control unit.

For the proper care of turtles creating sun spots where the animals get enough heat and UV and also can dry themselves, is one of the most essential things.

Usually turtle tanks have no lids and are open at the top. As a result the heat vanishes to the top and it is difficult to reach the necessary temperatures. Therefore with aquatique turtles we tend to have the need for stronger lighting compared to normal terrariums of similar size.

Consequently Lucky Reptile provides with the Bright Sun Turtle a lamp that was especially developed for aquatic turtles and corresponds to the animals requirements of UV and heat. Heat and UV-output were adjusted to the fact that with turtles the distances between lamp and animal are normally smaller. While a good heat output is desired, it was necessary to reduce the UV output of the Bright Sun Turtle compared to normal reptile UV lamps to make it safe at the lower distances. The lamp is suitable for most commercially available turtle tanks. Due to the thick glass casing, the Bright Sun is more resistant against water splashes than most other lamps. The spectrum of the lamp is in generally also suitable for fish and aquatic plants.

Attention! Due to its special relation of UV radiation and heat output the Bright Sun Turtle is not suitable for usage in normal terrariums.

Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Desert 100W

The Bright Sun UV is a revolutionary new UV lamp that offers light, heat and UV in one lamp at low wattages.

A Bright Sun UV Desert 70W offers heat and UV output comparable to a 160W mercury vapour based UV lamp but its light output is 5 times higher! This is especially important as it was impossible till now to recreate natural lighting conditions inside a terrarium. In nature a light intensity of 100.000 lux and more exists on a sunny day. Especially with desert species a high light intensity is beneficial for the well-being and will influence activity and colours of the animals. While the Bright Sun UV Desert 70W still cannot match the power of the sun with 60.000 lux at 30 cm, it is far ahead of mercury vapour UV lamps (approx. 10.000 lux), fluorescent lamps and incandescent lamps.

The base for this high light output is the energy efficiency of the lamp. Most of the energy is converted into light while with incandescent lamps 95% of the input power is turned into heat. The low heat loss of the Bright Sun lamps allow the use even in small vivariums. An effective reflector construction ensures that almost all created heat is concentrated inside the light focus. The lamp is therefore able to create warm basking areas.

The spectrum of the lamp is optimized for desert reptiles. Research and tests have shown that reptiles from desert regions prefer a daylight spectrum with a colour temperature of 6000K. This is achieved by the Bright Sun UV Desert. In combination with its heat, UV output and high light intensity the Bright Sun UV is practically a small sun for vivariums.

Average life is 6000h, we recommend changing lamps yearly though to provide always the best lighting possible to the animals as the spectrum will change over time. This is typical for metal halide technology and also dependent on the type of ballast used. Also UV and light output will continually decrease over time.

The Bright Sun will fit into standard E27 porcelain lampholder and requires a ballast like the Lucky Reptile Bright Control devices. It is possible to upgrade existing terrarium lighting setups that use E27 lampholders.

Exo Terra SunRay Fixture inc. Ballast & Bulb 35W

The Exo Terra SunRay Fixture's stylish looks suits all kinds of terrariums and integrates into any living room. The SunRay Metal Halide Bulb is an all-in-one bulb that combines very high light output and heat radiation with optimal levels of UVA and UVB. The Exo Terra SunRay delivers a consistent spectrum, which closely matches that of natural sunlight, contributing to the animal's overall wellbeing. The combination of the correct wavelength UVB and heat enables the animal to produce it's own vitamin D3 for proper calcium absorption and to prevent metabolic diseases (e.g. MBD). The powerful light output and the balanced UV rays stimulate the appetite, breeding behavior and the overall health of reptiles. The aluminum facetted reflector produces an evenly distributed light beam. Aluminum dissipates heat very effectively, resulting in a longer lifespan and a more stable operation than glass reflectors. The Exo Terra SunRay can be used as a sole light source.

Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Jungle 35w

The Bright Sun UV Jungle was developed especially for reptiles from tropical and forest regions. It has a slightly lower UV performance than the Bright Sun UV Desert taking the different conditions in the natural habitat of these animals into account. Branches and leaves filter quite a lot of UV, so the animals do not experience the full intensity of the sun. In addition it has to be considered that arboreal animals will usually be able to get quite close to a lamp inside a vivarium. Since UV radiation is potentially dangerous and the UV intensity is at 10 cm distance 5 times higher than at 30 cm, we have consciously reduced the UV output.

The spectrum was adapted to the natural conditions of forest regions. With 4000K the colour temperature is warmer than the daylight of the Bright Sun UV Desert. Tests have shown that tropical lizards like water dragons prefer the warmer light of the Bright Sun UV Jungle over the daylight of the Bright Sun UV Desert.

The warmer light of the Bright Sun UV Jungle will also promote the colours of plants causing a nice forest ambiance inside the vivarium.

While the Bright Sun UV Desert 70W still cannot match the power of the sun with 60.000 lux at 30 cm, it is far ahead of mercury vapour UV lamps (approx. 10.000 lux), fluorescent lamps and incandescent lamps.

The base for this high light output is the energy efficiency of the lamp. Most of the energy is converted into light while with incandescent lamps 95% of the input power is turned into heat. The low heat loss of the Bright Sun lamps allow the use even in small vivariums. An effective reflector construction ensures that almost all created heat is concentrated inside the light focus. The lamp is therefore able to create warm basking areas.

The spectrum of the lamp is optimized for desert reptiles. Research and tests have shown that reptiles from desert regions prefer a daylight spectrum with a colour temperature of 6000K. This is achieved by the Bright Sun UV Desert. In combination with its heat, UV output and high light intensity the Bright Sun UV is practically a small sun for vivariums.

Average life is 6000h, we recommend changing lamps yearly though to provide always the best lighting possible to the animals as the spectrum will change over time. This is typical for metal halide technology and also dependent on the type of ballast used. Also UV and light output will continually decrease over time.

The Bright Sun will fit into standard E27 porcelain lampholder and requires a ballast like the Lucky Reptile Bright Control devices. It is possible to upgrade existing terrarium lighting setups that use E27 lampholders.

Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Jungle 50w

The Bright Sun UV Jungle was developed especially for reptiles from tropical and forest regions. It has a slightly lower UV performance than the Bright Sun UV Desert taking the different conditions in the natural habitat of these animals into account. Branches and leaves filter quite a lot of UV, so the animals do not experience the full intensity of the sun. In addition it has to be considered that arboreal animals will usually be able to get quite close to a lamp inside a vivarium. Since UV radiation is potentially dangerous and the UV intensity is at 10 cm distance 5 times higher than at 30 cm, we have consciously reduced the UV output.

The spectrum was adapted to the natural conditions of forest regions. With 4000K the colour temperature is warmer than the daylight of the Bright Sun UV Desert. Tests have shown that tropical lizards like water dragons prefer the warmer light of the Bright Sun UV Jungle over the daylight of the Bright Sun UV Desert.

The warmer light of the Bright Sun UV Jungle will also promote the colours of plants causing a nice forest ambiance inside the vivarium.

Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Desert 70w

The Bright Sun UV is a revolutionary new UV lamp that offers light, heat and UV in one lamp at low wattages.

A Bright Sun UV Desert 70W offers heat and UV output comparable to a 160W mercury vapour based UV lamp but its light output is 5 times higher!

Lucky Reptile Bright Sun FLOOD Jungle 70w

Thanks to its wide reflector the Bright Sun FLOOD Jungle ensures a large scale illumination of the terrarium and has a lower UV and light output than a Bright Sun UV.

For a lot of forest dwelling reptiles this is an advantage as many avoid direct sunlight. Most chameleons for example belong to this group. For these animals the Bright Sun FLOOD Jungle is the perfect lighting and can be used as a sole lamp as these species do also have lower UV requirements.

For sun loving animals like Green Iguanas we recommend the combination with the Bright Sun UV Jungle to create local basking sites.

Metal Halide Bulbs

Combined heat and UV's provide the perfect basking spot for turtles, tortoises and many reptiles. These powerful bulbs are most commonly used over tortoise tables or a turtles basking spot but can be used in larger vivs to provide another source of UV.
