4.0 / 5

  • The best fixture that we’ve ever used for our reptiles’ UVB requirements! This T5HO (high output) fixture gives superior performance because of its high output electronic ballast and its high-efficiency silver reflector. PLUS, this fixture comes with a Basking Light Assembly.
  • Improved effectiveness is achieved by being able to mount under your cage top’s screen mesh. The basking socket uses energy-efficient halogen bulbs; typically 50 watts (20L size habitats) or 75 watts (40B habitats and our Custom Cages).
  • You first feed the end of the power cord in through one of the access holes in the cage top panel, or at the screen top corner for cages with lift-off tops. One zip tie goes over the end of the power cord after it is plugged into the fixture and up through the screen mesh. The second zip tie goes over the aluminum strip of the basking light assembly (NOT over the connector pins) and up through the screen mesh.
  • The Reptile T5HO 22" Fixture & Reflector with Basking Light Assembly comes with 2 cable ties for mounting underneath the cage top's screen mesh. Includes power cord (with on/off switch) and 2 Pan-Ty cable ties (made of heat and UV-resistant Nylon 6.6).
  • Animal should be no closer than 10” directly under the fixture and no closer than 6” diagonally from the sides or ends of the fixture. Also, take care that your pet cannot touch the halogen basking bulb, when you arrange your habitat accessories. We do sell both the Zoo Med ReptiSun 10.0 UVB T5HO 22” fluorescent tube and the Zoo Med ReptiSun 5.0 UVB T5HO 22” fluorescent tube for this fixture; plus four sizes of halogen basking bulbs, 20w, 35w, 50w and 75w.

BEST all in one light fixture for Bearded Dragons By:
Off the Chain Dragons HIGHLY RECOMMENDS! Great lighting system set up. No clutter, one plug of both light types. Best light setup for Healthy Happy Bearded Dragons. I have ordered off line and bought/buy when at Reptile Shows. Good price when you consider it takes care of all your Beardie lighting needs. Your Beardies will love you for their new lighting system.
Best light fixture I've seen By:
I really like this fixture. it has a sleek, low profile design. We wanted our bearded dragon enclosure to have a professional, exhibit quality appearance. I did not like the cluttered look of lighting domes sitting on top of the cage. This fit the bill perfectly. I also like the fact it mounts inside the cage to maximize UVB rays and heating transmitted into the habitat.
Five Stars By:
This is fantastic takes all the guess work out of lights for most species.
Like it By:
Love the sleek look, only downfall is pet stores don't carry the 22" UVB bulbs around here in case it were to break or fail. So keep back ups.
Five Stars By:
Works as described. Fits perfectly (diagonally) on our 50/50 divided lid.
Great Lighting Option By:
I use this for all of my reptiles as it helps save space with multiple enclosures on a single shelving unit. This is the only product I've found that gives you the option for both UVB and a basking lamp in a single piece.My only complaint is that the mounting method could use some improvements, especially for something costs $70+. I use metal wire to keep it in place.
Five Stars By:
Cage is everything I wanted
Awesome By:
This is a far superior product than any other product out there. It fits perfectly. Looks very sleek and is much more attractive than having several domes Would recommend to all.
Great Fixture Easy To Install By:
Purchased to install in enclosure under screen, easy to install & works perfect.
Beardies love it! By:
It's very nice and bright, lights up the whole aquarium. Our Beardies love it!

Carolina Custom Cages Zoo Med ReptiSun 10.0 UVB T5HO 22 Reptile Lighting Fluorescent Tube

Product Rating

4.1 / 5

  • The best fluorescent tube that weve ever used for our reptiles UVB requirements! Other tubes that we tried either dont have adequate output in the beginning or they degrade much faster than should be expected. Carolina Custom Cages is a division of Carolina Designer Dragons, LLC.
  • A UVB 10.0 Reptile Fluorescent Tube means that 10% of the tubes output is UVB. This UVB is necessary for your reptiles synthesis of vitamin D3, which is essential for the effective metabolism of dietary calcium in its bones and blood.
  • Some reptiles require more or less UVB than others. Bearded dragons and similar desert reptiles require more UVB and a 10.0 tube is the better choice. Green iguanas, anoles and similar jungle / forest reptiles require less UVB and a 5.0 tube is the better choice in smaller habitats when these reptiles are younger. We also prefer to use the 5.0 tube for our translucent bearded dragons and for our silkback bearded dragons (silkies). UVB output is also influenced by a reflectors efficiency and the distance to the reptile.
  • This T5HO 22" UVB 10.0 Reptile Fluorescent Tube fits all 3 of the T5HO fixtures offered by Carolina Custom Cages; the Standard Fixture & Reflector, the Fixture & Reflector with Undermount Assembly to make it easy to mount underneath your cages tops screen mesh and the Fixture & Reflector with Basking Light Assembly. This third unit is able to provide for UVB and basking requirements in one streamlined fixture that is also easy to mount underneath your cage's top screen mesh.
  • This T5HO 22" UVB 10.0 Reptile Fluorescent Tube with the fixtures listed above is a superior addition to the habitats of bearded dragons, Rankin dragons, horned toad lizards, uromastyx, most other desert reptiles, small turtles and turtles. Animal should be no closer than 10 directly under the fixture and no closer than 6 diagonally from the sides or ends of the fixture.
