These reflectors really do double the output of UVB light from your fluorescent tube, as well as doubling the visible light. Reflectors like these are in my opinion ideal whenever fluorescent tubes are used to supply UVB to lizards which are sun-lovers, ie, species that bask in full sunlight during the day. I use them with my bearded dragon babies before they are big enough to go in a 4ft viv with a mercury vapour lamp. If you fit a reflector, the effect is the same as putting up a second UVB tube.. you get twice the UVB, at the same distance.
these reflector's are great it makes ur tube twice as good and if u cant find a way to mount ur tube to a wooden viv u can always just put a couple of screws through it
I,VE JUST FITTED MY REFLECTOR I GOT FROM LIVEFOOD, IT,S MUCH STRONGER THAN MY OLD ONE. IF I HELD MY OLD ONE WRONG IT WOULD BEND BUT NO CHANCE WITH THE ARCADIA REFLECTOR. IT IS TOP QUALITY IF YOUR THINKING OF GETTING ONE GET ONE OF THESE YOU,LL NOT REGRET IT.
Top piece of kit ! Easy to fit. Perfect for any high UV loving reptiles. I have a breeding group of beardies in a massive viv & use 2 of these in combination with reptiglo 8.0 & 2.0 & they love it !! These will will also allow you to run your UV light for longer to get nearer the 1yr lifespan rather than the 6mths they usually last. Reptile mag recently did a test on these & proved they do work, they do double the UV output & they will therefore allow you to run longer before changing your UV.
A must have!!! it can easy x3 of x4 the power of your UV so why not? its cheap and simple to install! You just have to put screws into the smaller slider bits and fix it tight to the wall/roof of the viv!
u can see straigh away that its much brither with this behing ur uv tube ah dont know the in and outs of uv so i wont coment but ill have to knock a star off due to a sharp edge (ouch my poor finger) otherwise i recomend this for any viv or fish thank
