Vivarium Lighting...Explained

Vivarium Lighting...Explained


The next generation of vivarium lighting. These sleek, aluminum-cast LED lights are great for lighting your vivariums/terrariums.  This 16" LED has diodes that emit 1,650 lumens and 6,500 kelvin. With red and blue diodes incorporated into the design, this ideal color spectrum brings out the colors in your plants and really gets them to grow! The vent on the front pushes all the heat away from the inside of your vivarium, preventing your vivarium from getting to hot. Great for tropical species that like it cool! 

We recommend purchasing this light with the BioDudes 6' cord adapter. The adapter is not included. 

Please Note: The use of excessive force when screwing the units in sockets resulting in the breaking of the plastic base and/or forcing the bulb further than it was designed to rotate will void the warranty.
