What are reptile light fittings?
Every reptile enclosure needs a light fitting to deliver visible light and heat to your pet and give them a day-night cycle to minimise stress. Reptile light fittings are designed to hold and power light bulbs, allowing you to turn them on and off easily. Some reptile light fittings can even be combined into larger systems, to create a variety of lighting effects, and with thermostats to control the temperature within the enclosure.
Why should I buy reptile light fittings?
Reptile light fittings are a necessary part of any compact light setup. If you want to keep your tank illuminated cheaply and efficiently, these fittings are the best choice as they don’t even take up much space. The majority of these fittings are designed to be attached to the roof of an enclosure or suspended above it.
What are the main types of reptile light fittings?
Reptile light fittings can be broken into different groups depending on their fittings and wattage. The fitting of your light fitting will determine which bulbs can be used with the light fitting and how they attach inside or outside of the enclosure. Wattage will determine the power that can be supplied to the bulbs, you will want a wattage that matches or exceeds that of your bulb to ensure it works.
What should I look for?
To choose the right light fitting you should work back from the needs of your pet. Research the lighting needs of your pet and choose a bulb that fulfils those needs. Then, once you have the right bulb, pick a light fitting that will support the bulb. If you are still stuck between a few choices look for the most energy-efficient option as this will minimise running costs.
