T5 UV Light Tubes

T5 UV light tubes are one of the most effective ways to introduce UVA and UVB to a reptile enclosure. UV is essential in reptile care for nearly all diurnal species. Much in the same way humans can get rickets from being inside too much reptiles can also gain deficiencies. When reptiles are lacking in vitamin D they cannot synthesis the calcium in their diet. Their bones weaken and they develop what is known as metabolic bone disease.

UV stimulates the production of vitamin D in reptiles ensuring they can make full use of the calcium in their diet and they do not develop this disease. T5 UV tubes disperse UVB with a range of up to 24 inches and will disperse this essential UV for 9-12 months before needing to be replaced.

When choosing your UV tube you need to consider what animal it is for and which size you need. As a general rule we would say you want the longest tube you can fit along the back wall. Desert and plains species will want a 10-12% UV while jungle dwelling species may only need a 5-6% UV. If you are unsure on which item to get please call 01604753823.
