Mercury Vapour bulbs need to be used in a ceramic fitting only. They must also be used in large enclosures where the reptile can get away from excess heat. Cannot be used on thermostats.
Arcadia Reptile is delighted to include a world exclusive “Mini M.V” lamp. These much smaller lamps emit a safe natural amount of UVB and a balanced UVA similar to wild exposure at lower fitting heights and also produce a good stable amount of heat. These lamps are particularly suited to being fitted inside wooden vivaria and over mesh topped Terraria. This lamp will enable many more reptile and Amphibian keepers to create a good UV rich photogradient within the enclosure. With a target height of 20-30cms from lamp to animal this is the one stop mini solution to your animals basking needs.
