Arcadia ShadeDweller Replacement Bulb, 12"
The Arcadia ShadeDweller 7% T5 SO UVB bulb is specially designed for the needs of nocturnal and crepuscular reptiles. After you have purchased your Arcadia ShadeDweller ProT5 UVB Kit, you will need to replace the bulb every 12 months to keep it at peak performance.
Color temperature: 6000K
10" below lamp, no mesh — UVI 0.80
15" below lamp, no mesh — UVI 0.65
20" below lamp, no mesh — UVI 0.45
24" below lamp, no mesh — UVI 0.30
The basking area should be the point of highest UVI in your reptile's enclosure. Due to low UVB output, this bulb is best suited for use with low-UVB species such as ball pythons, corn snakes, leopard geckos, crested geckos, and small day geckos.
Instructions for Use:
Place the Arcadia ShadeDweller ProT5 UVB Kit 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 and effective distance 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.
