Repti Glo Compact 2.0, 5.0 & 10.0 / Compact Fluorescent Bulbs

Banner

The advantage of the Exo Terra Repti Glo Compact Fluorescent bulb is its size and the fact that it is self-ballasted. A regular screw fitting is sufficient to operate these bulbs. The spiral shape of the bulb enables vertical or horizontal mounting without compromising performance.

It is recommended to combine a high UVB output (Repti Glo 5.0 and 10.0) with a very high visual light output (Repti Glo 2.0) for optimal results. Fluorescent bulbs do not provide sufficient heat. A separate heat source is required in addition (ex: incandescent basking lamp).

Repti Glo 2.0 Compact
Full Spectrum Terrarium Lamp

Repti Glo 2.0 Compact
  • Ideal spectrum for all reptiles & amphibians
  • Stimulates plant growth
  • High visual light output
  • Stimulates appetite, activity and reproductive behaviour through UVA radiation
  • High Colour Rendering Index of 98 (CRI) - 6700 K
  • Recommended in combination with Repti Glo 5.0 or Repti Glo 10.0, depending on the reptile's requirements
 

The Exo Terra Repti Glo 2.0 is a general light source with a high visual light output and a very high colour rendering index (CRI), but a lower UVB radiation. This bulb is suitable for snakes, all amphibians (frogs, toads and salamanders) and nocturnal animals. Plants will thrive under this light as well. It is also a perfect complementary light to a UVB bulb to boost visual light.

Repti Glo 5.0 Compact
Tropical Terrarium Lamp

Repti Glo 5.0 Compact
  • Ideal for all tropical and sub-tropical reptiles
  • High UVB output
  • Effective up to 30 cm (12")
  • Provides necessary UVB rays for optimal calcium metabolism
  • Stimulates appetite, activity and reproductive behaviour through UVA radiation
  • Recommended in combination with Repti Glo 2.0 for a higher visual light output
 

The Exo Terra Repti Glo 5.0 has a moderate to high UVB output, similar to that of shady environments such as rain forests and other tropical locations. Reptiles living in these habitats receive less UV radiation because of the many climatological conditions (fairly high humidity, changes in weather, etc) that prevent direct sunlight from reaching them or their basking sites.

Repti Glo 10.0 Compact
Desert Terrarium Lamp

Repti Glo 10.0 Compact
  • Ideal for all desert dwelling reptiles
  • Ultra High UVB output
  • Effective up to 50 cm (20")
  • Provides necessary UVB rays for optimal calcium metabolism
  • Recommended for use with screened terrariums; terrariums with dense screen covers (screens can filter out UVB rays)
  • Recommended in combination with Repti Glo 2.0 for a higher visual light output
 

The Exo Terra Repti Glo 10.0 has a very high UVB output similar to that associated with desert environments. Desert locations receive more direct sunlight than any other because of fewer clouds, less air humidity and no plants or trees to provide shade. Therefore desert reptiles are more exposed to UV radiation than any other type of reptile. This bulb can also be used on screened terrariums or terrariums with dense screen covers to ensure UVB penetration. Dense screens can filter out up to 50% of the UVB rays.

To fit our range of fluorescent bulbs, both linear and compact, Exo Terra developed a complete line of terrarium tops and linear fluorescent bulb controllers. Almost all of these fluorescent fixtures have multiple fittings to enable a combination of different Repti Glo bulbs in order to simulate any micro habitat suitable for a specific species.

The Exo Terra Compact Tops (PT2225 / PT2226 / PT2227 / PT2229) are perfectly suited for the Exo Terra Compact Bulbs.
