    A full spectrum fluorescent lamp designed to simulate, as closely as possible, the spectrum of natural sunlight including UVA and UVB.

    • Simulates the full UV spectrum of natural sunlight
    • High light output
    • 2% UVB
    • 10% UVA
    • Produces excellent natural colours

    Arcadia Reptile D3 and D3+ T8 lamps have been specifically designed with the animals health in mind. We are proud to have the world’s highest output T8 lamps in a true 6% and 12% UVB. All of our UVB percentages are measured as part of the total output of light from the lamp and AFTER the all important first 100 hours of output. You can be rest assured that by using Arcadia Reptile D3 and D3+ lamps that you are providing the very best in T8 technology that money can buy. The Arcadia Reptile D3 and D3+ UVB lamps are effective to for one whole year and will keep your animal in tip top condition.

    T8 reptile lamps are particularly useful for use in shallow enclosures and for those shade dwelling species and along with the use of the right reflector can produce a perfect environment for your pet reptile or Amphibian. Don’t forget to check out “lighting Guide” to make sure that you are using the right lamp for your species and more importantly your height of vivarium.

    The Benefits Natural Sunlight

    Designed to give a warm natural balance and excellent colour rendition with an optimum light output and a colour temperature close to that of natural sunlight at 5,600K.

    The natural sunlight lamp can be used to recreate natural sunlight in small environments for shade dwelling animals. These animals will benefit from UVA exposure, this wavelength can affect the way that they view the world and for some species the inclusion of UVB will enable the D3 cycle, recreating crepuscular behaviour.

    Created specifically for species such as geckos, snakes, amphibians (frogs, toads, salamanders etc.), spiders, scorpions, stick insects and others that require partial shade in the wild.

    Mix n Match

    The natural sunlight lamp is also ideal to be used alongside stronger UV lamps to increase the visible light available in an enclosure.

    Product Safety

    Lamps can be fragile pieces of equipment. Please follow the following steps to ensure the safe fitting and use of fluorescent lamps.

    At either end of a fluorescent lamp you will see two brass coloured connection pins. These are the electrodes that take energy from the controller to start and run the lamp. These are quite fragile by nature. It is imperative that both pins are safely located into the pin sockets inside the lamp holder before the lamp is pressed into place. Failure to line the pins up correctly will cause the pins to bend and snap and break through the lamp cap rendering the lamp unusable.
    The Ultra-seal lamp ring must be unscrewed from the lamp holder and placed over the lamp prior to fitting and only re-seated onto the lamp holder when you are sure that the lamp pins are seated correctly. High Output T5 lamp leads must be fully unwound also or you may notice lamp flickering or beaks in illumination. You can also use a very small amount of a substance like Vaseline to lubricate the lamp ring and so stop it fusing to the lamp after long periods of heat. After cooling lamps can be wiped clean with a damp cloth once every two weeks or so to remove any dust build up from the lamp, this in turn will help to maintain the lamps full output. The all important reflector should also be wiped clean at the same time.

    Lamp Reminder Service

    Is your lamp still emitting the correct amount of UV!

    The amount of light emitted from a lamp decreases with the age of the lamp, particularly in lamps which emit ultraviolet radiation, so it is important to remember to change you lamps at the end of their recommended service life.
