Reptiles Expert UV-Matrix

Our UVB matrix helps you choose the right UVB lamp for your terrarium

With the UVB-MATRIX it is extremely easy to determine the right UVB illuminant for your animal


The suitable products are marked in green in the name line.

The main factors are:

Which animal is it? It needs more (desert dwellers) or less UVB light
Distance between the animal and the UVB lamp
This results in the recommendation for suitable UVB products
Adherence to the correct lighting duration per day

Basic rules:

Don't overdo it - better start with lower UVB levels or shorter lighting periods
ALWAYS give the animal shady retreat
Always attach the lamp vertically above the sun. Never at an angle - otherwise the eyes will be damaged
Replace older UVB lamps regularly, because the UVB performance decreases with age
