- ShadeDweller Arboreal 2.4% or the 7% lamp

Which lamp should I choose?   
Choosing the correct ShadeDweller will allow you to provide the correct provision of UV-B to species such as (but not limited to):

  • Leopard Geckos 
  • Crested Geckos 
  • Amphibians
  • Inverts
  • Hatchling Snakes

The ShadeDweller 7% UV-B has been designed around the needs of crepuscular species such as Leopard Geckos.The fixture is intended to be placed at a distance of 10-12 inches (25-30 cm) from the basking spot. This positioning allows the animal to obtain essential UV energy in a safe and effective manner.

However, for those who keep these species in smaller or more shallow enclosures where the optimal distance for the ShadeDweller 7% UV-B is not achievable or keep crepuscular Arboreal species and choose to decorate the top of the enclosure, the ShadeDweller-Arboreal 2.4% fitting becomes a better choice.  

The ShadeDweller-Arboreal 2.4% has been designed to be safe and effective for use over standard meshed topped enclosures, as well as inside vivariums where the planting and decoration is close to the lamp. The ShadeDweller-Arboreal 2.4% Kit provides the ideal UVI (UV Index) for shade dwelling species, like Crested Geckos and those falling into Ferguson zones 1-2, to benefit fully from activated colour vision and the naturally effective D3 cycle, safely. The effectiveness of this fixture depends on factors such as the distance to the basking area, the species' climbing ability, and the requirement of a smaller area of UV energy.

Both ShadeDweller UV Lamps have a 12 month lamp life - click here to buy a replacement lamp.
