Zoo Med Reptisun LED UVB Terrarium Hood – 14 inch


The Zoo Med ReptiSun LED UVB Terrarium Hood – 14 inch is designed for reptile and amphibian terrariums to provide both UVB lighting for their health and visible light for the terrarium environment. Here’s a breakdown of the features:


LED Lighting: The hood utilizes energy-efficient LED lighting, including various types of LEDs to create a comprehensive lighting environment for your terrarium.

UVB Lighting: The hood comes with a ReptiSun® 5.0 T5 High Output lamp, which emits UVB light. UVB light is important for reptiles and some amphibians as it helps them synthesize vitamin D3, which is essential for calcium metabolism and overall health.

Visible Light Spectrum: The hood includes 6500K daylight high-output LEDs, which mimic natural daylight. This type of lighting is suitable for providing a naturalistic lighting environment that is pleasing to the eye and beneficial for plants and animals.

Plant Growth Stimulation: The hood also incorporates 620 nm Red LEDs that stimulate live plant growth. This red spectrum is often utilized by plants during their growth stages.

Nighttime Lighting Simulation: The 465 nm Blue LEDs simulate a nighttime lighting effect often referred to as the “Lunar Effect.” This type of lighting can create a moonlit ambiance in the terrarium and can be useful for observing nocturnal behavior.

Efficient Reflector Design: The hood features a highly polished curved reflector. This design is intended to maximize the efficiency of light distribution and UVB penetration within the terrarium.

Long Lifespan: The product claims to have a 20,000-hour lifespan, which means the lighting components are designed to last a considerable amount of time before needing replacement.


Overall, this Zoo Med ReptiSun LED UVB Terrarium Hood appears to be a versatile lighting solution for large terrariums and planted setups, catering to the lighting needs of both the inhabitants and the live plants within the enclosure. It offers a combination of UVB exposure, naturalistic daylight, plant growth stimulation, and a lunar effect for nighttime observation.
