Zoo Med Reptisun T5 HO Terrarium Hood Review

The hood is an excellent investment, ensuring you provide ample UVA and UVB for your reptile pet.

You want to ensure you make the enclosure as natural as possible for your pet, which means providing them with adequate lighting and UV rays during the day time.

A timer, such as the Zoo Med Laboratories Repti Day Night Timer can be a great investment.

This timer is easy to set up and provides day and night timer options to ensure your pet receives the most natural experience when living in captivity.

Installation and Usage

Once you have selected the appropriate bulb, you will want to ensure the lamp is unplugged when you remove or install the lamp.

Installing the lamp is quick and easy.

Simply fit into the fixture by inserting the pins into the lamp holders and rotating the lamp with one quarter turn.

Place the fixture over the terrarium, above your screen cover.

Insert the plug into the power and turn it on.

The on and off switch can be found at the back of the hood.

Mounting

The hood is designed to be mounted outside the enclosure, placed over your mesh screen.

There are concerns that the mesh lid can reduce UV penetration into the enclosure.

The hood is not to be used in wet or damp conditions and therefore is not recommended to be placed inside the terrarium.

Safety

  • Never exceed the electrical rating
  • Do not repair, splice or modify the cord before use
  • Do not use in wet conditions. Indoor use only
  • Ensure plug is fully inserted
  • Always unplug the power cord when changing or inserting the bulb
  • Never cover with any material
  • Do not modify or alter the product
  • There are no user-serviceable parts – do not attempt to repair yourself
  • Gives off UV rays
  • Do not stare into the light
  • Light to be placed overhead and not to the side
  • Lamp should be mounted a minimum of six inches from the basking platform

  • Very disappointing

    By Dragonmom on Jun 2, 2021

    I can’t find this specific bulb in stock at any pet stores around me so I was glad to find them on chewy, but neither bulb worked and I am using the reptisun T5 HO reflective hood and didn’t touch them with my bare hands or anything. They may have been damaged in shipping, but they were faulty and didn’t hold up for the price.

  • Powerful skinny bulb

    By Geraldine on May 9, 2021

    I've been using ReptiSun 10.0s for my bearded dragon for 12 years and they're still my favorite. Great UV output. Just switched from T8 but the thinner T5 seems to be just as radiant. My beardie is already more active with the new replacement bulb

Postby CooperDragon » Fri Jan 12, 2018 11:17 am

You can hang the sunblaster from a fixed top or hang it from a wire. It won't sit flush on a tank top though because the bulb sticks out below the fixture a bit. https://www.amazon.com/Sunblaster-904296-NanoTech-Fixture-Reflector/dp/B00AKKUBDQ/

At 19'' tall it's a toss up. I'd probably mount it on top of the tank and built the basking site a bit higher if you can. Within about 12'' of the bulb which will give 7'' of climbing space. If you're shining the light through a fine mesh top you'll want the light to be about 10'' from the basking spot to help make up for what the mesh intercepts.

If you want a lay flat fixture you could go with a ReptiSun hood and just replace the 5.0 bulb that comes with it. A ReptiSun 10 or Arcadia 12% 22'' T5 will fit that fixture.

You could also go with one of the fixtures from light your reptiles. They come with a great Arcadia 12% bulb and will sit flush or can be hung from a ceiling easily. http://www.lightyourreptiles.com/22-t-5-ho-fixture-high-output-with-arcadia-d3-12-ho-bulb/

If the tank is 19 inches tall , the bar tube mounted in a elcheapo Walmart domestic t5ho tube fixture (no reflector , assuming the plastic diffuser is removed) will supply virtually zero (under 20 microW UVB / sq.cm at the floor of the viv (your dragon will spend most it's time there) and you'll need to arrive a basking spot no more than 6 inches from the bare tube to get adequate levels of UVA & UVB (ie 180 -200 microW UVB / sq.cm see this :
Image
The curve for the t8 12%ubv is a good approx to the situation , or simply multiply the UVB fluxes for the t5ho 12%uvb by 5/6 x 1/2 = 5/12 and you'll have the fluxes at any give distance from the bare t5ho 10%uvb tube.
