Zoo Med Reptisun LED UVB Terrarium Hood – 30 inch


The Zoo Med Reptisun LED UVB Terrarium Hood – 30 inch is designed for reptile and amphibian terrariums to provide the appropriate lighting conditions for their health and well-being. Here’s a breakdown of the features:


Brilliant Light: The terrarium hood features high-output LEDs with a color temperature of 6500K, which mimics natural daylight. This kind of lighting is beneficial for creating a naturalistic environment for reptiles and amphibians.

UVB Lighting: The hood includes a Reptisun 5.0 T5 HO (high-output) lamp. UVB lighting is important for reptiles as it helps them synthesize vitamin D3, which is essential for calcium metabolism and overall health. A UVB level of 5.0 is considered suitable for many reptile species.

Bright Light for Color Rendering: The UVB lamp also provides bright light that enhances the color rendering of the terrarium environment. This can make the colors of the reptiles, plants, and other elements within the terrarium appear more vibrant and natural.

Plant Growth Stimulation: The hood includes red LEDs with a wavelength of 620 nm. This wavelength is beneficial for stimulating live plant growth within the terrarium, which can contribute to the overall ecosystem and aesthetic.

Nighttime Lighting Simulation: The hood also features blue LEDs with a wavelength of 465 nm. These blue LEDs can simulate nighttime lighting conditions, creating a “lunar effect” that mimics the lighting during the night. This can provide a more natural day-night cycle for the inhabitants of the terrarium.

Long Life: The LEDs in the hood have a long life expectancy, with a range of approximately 20,000 hours. This means you won’t need to replace the lighting components as frequently.

Highly Polished Curved Reflector: The reflector is designed for maximum efficiency in terms of both light distribution and UVB penetration. This ensures that the lighting is effectively utilized within the terrarium.

UVB Penetration: The reflector’s design aims to optimize UVB penetration into the terrarium, providing the reptiles and amphibians with the UVB exposure they need.

12 Months for UVB: The included UVB lamp is recommended to be replaced after 12 months to ensure that it continues to provide effective UVB output for the reptiles.


In summary, the Zoo Med Reptisun LED UVB Terrarium Hood – 30 inch appears to be a comprehensive lighting solution for reptile and amphibian terrariums. It combines naturalistic lighting, UVB exposure, color enhancement, plant growth stimulation, and a lunar nighttime effect to create an environment that’s closer to their natural habitats. Just remember to follow the manufacturer’s recommendations for lamp replacement and maintenance to ensure the well-being of your terrarium’s inhabitants.
