10" below lamp, no mesh — UVI 0.80

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.
