Product Information

Arcadia Shade Dweller Kits come in two size options, the Pro T5 or Mini T5, both coming with a 8w ShadeDweller bulb. This provides 7% UVB along with a lower 17% UVA, which has been designed specifically with crepuscular species in mind.

Crepuscular species tend to hide away during the day, and prefer dawn and dusk for investigating, so this lower light means it is a more natural lighting for them, whilst still providing the very best in quality UVB. This is ideal for Leopard Geckos, Crested Geckos and many snake species, such as Corns, Kings, Milks and Rat Snakes, especially those kept in the "light and shade" method.

These kits are stand alone units and ready to plug and play, though they can be linked together to create a larger unit for more spacious areas, up to 10 units can be put together. The easy to use Pro T5 Kit can be fixed easily inside a vivarium or even hung within an enclosure (where safe to do so). Its sleek design and specially curved reflector will ensure that you use less space but project as much light forward as possible. The MiniT5 is best for internal fitting, in more shallow enclosures where the light is located closer to the animal, at a distance of around 20 - 30cm.

This full-spectrum bulb is just 8w T5 (30cm/12"), so is very energy efficient and helps to provide essential Vit D3, and has the standard Arcadia 12 month lamp life.

    Arcadia equipment seems high quality and the Pro T5 is no exception. Only had it a week so can't comment on its longevity, but it seems well made.

    The item is exactly what I expected, the fixture doesn’t protrude that much and because it’s flat it can be installed higher or lower in the viv, which is good if you have a flat viv. The lights can also be attached to other lights easily with the wire they provide. Its easy to put together however one of the light fixtures came broken so I couldn’t put the light in it, luckily I managed to fix it. The light is smaller than expected and slightly flimsy. Some faults were that the tape which sticks the reflector to the fixture wasn’t in either of the boxes and the screws provided were completely different from one another so I have to use my own screws.

    Quality product but fiddly to set up. Had to watch YouTube video. For the extra money, I’d recommend the small size instead of the mini.

    Great little light to give my snake a more natural light source. Only problem was no double double sticky tape for the reflector but luckily I had some.

    Overall does the job with minimal set up. Only gripe was there was nothing to attach the reflector so had to go out any buy double sided tape. Also the assembly instructions were not clear at all pretty much guessed the assembly.
