Arcadia 14% UVB T5 HO Bulb, 46"
The Arcadia 14% UVB bulb is Arcadia's most powerful T5 HO UVB lamp. This lamp was created in Germany by experts to provide not only high quantities of UVB radiation, but to also provide this energy without any limitation to the color and quantity of visible light.
The Arcadia 14% UVB provides upper-index basking for arid, sun-loving species such as bearded dragons and uromastyx. This will allow you to create ‘wild-like’ indexes of energy with an energy rich, wide basking zone whilst providing ample access to light and shade for natural self-regulation.
The Arcadia 14% UVB has a CRI of over 95 which will allow you as the keeper to see your animal in all of its natural glory. It also produces 30% UVA radiation to benefit reptile eyesight.
Arcadia is the leading producer of UVB lighting worldwide, with more reliable performance and longer lifespan than other bulbs, plus no nasty blue/purple color or flickering!

Due to extremely high UVB output, this bulb is best suited for use with high-UVB species such as bearded dragons, uromastyx, and chuckwallas.
Color temperature: 8000K
Instructions for Use:
Use with a T5 HO fluorescent fixture with a reflector, installed no closer than 15" to your reptile. For best results, place on the extreme right or left of the enclosure in order to create a usable light gradient for your reptile. For terrestrial enclosures, the UVB bulb should be approximately half of the enclosure's length.
Placing the lamp above a mesh top reduces this bulb's UVB output by approximately 30%.
This bulb must be changed every 12 months to maintain performance.
For best results, we strongly recommend investing in a Solarmeter 6.5 to measure bulb output at the precise distance between the bulb and your reptile. This ensures maximum efficacy and reduces the likelihood of your reptile becoming under- or over-exposed to UVB.
Due to shipping considerations, Reptile Supply cannot accept returns on bulbs.
