Is this light rated for damp locations? I would like to use it inside of a paludarium.
Answer by • Jan 26, 2023
This is the ideal light fixture for paludariums, large terrariums, planted terrariums, and any species that benefits from UVB exposure and bright, visible light. This includes the ReptiSun® 5.0 T5 High Out lamp for safe and effective UVB and bright light for improved color rendering. Please note, the UVB lamps should be replaced once per year.
Does this also provide heat or do I need a basking lamp as well

This fixture does not provide heat, it provides UVB exposure and bright, visible light.
How do I provide a heat source with this type of hood?
Answer by • Nov 30, 2023
The REptisun LED/UVB hood does not provide heat, if you need a heat lamp you will still need to use a dome fixture next to it with a heat bulb in it.
