Les avantages de D3 UV Basking Lamp

The Arcadia D3 basking lamp is an ideal all in one lamp for providing heat, light and UV, every technology however has limitations. At Arcadia reptile we are passionate about providing the very best of systems to our captive reptiles and believe that our customers should be given the full picture of how lamps work, it is for this reason that we always encourage the use of a linear UV lamp, this would in most cases still be required to open up the usable photogradient available to the animal. As we all know reptiles have to be given the ability to self regulate their exposure between heat, light and UV and cool and shade.

The D3 cycle is dependent on this. If the footprint of a lamp is limited as spot source lamps are, then the usable emission zone is in turn limited. We would always suggest that in vivs over 24” in length that a high output T5 lamp is used alongside these UV rich basking spots. This then opens up the graduated power zones and allows the animals to decide when and where to bask and assimilate the power that it required at that moment.
