    Zoo Med ReptiSun 5.0 UVB Fluorescent Bulb
    A full 5% UVB output allows vitamin D3 synthesis to occur naturally, preventing or reversing MBD and other health problems in turtles and tortoises, Bearded Dragons, Iguanas, and all other diurnal reptiles. The ReptiSun® 5.0 is effective for UVB induced photo conversion of vitamin D3 in reptiles skin at distances up to 12". Accept no substitutes; get the original reptile UVB lamp - Zoo Meds ReptiSun® 5.0!

    Re: ReptiSun 5.0 UVB Fluorescent Bulb

    I gave this light a 3 because of the low UVB output it has, the high decay rate of the UVB and how close the reptile has to be in order for the light to be effective. (10" - 12" max.) There are better alternatives out there and I support those over these.
