ARCADIA Solar Basking Floodlight (E27)


What is an Arcadia Solar Basking Floodlight?

The Arcadia Solar Basking Floodlight range boasts a selection of good-quality basking bulbs. You can use an Arcadia Basking Solar Flood light to give your reptile a vital dose of UVA light and ambient heat from a more natural source and aid wellbeing. With a standard screw (E27) fitting, these Arcadia Basking Solar Flood Lamps are designed to shine out powerful UVA rays into your reptile's home.

This focused beam increases the ambient temperature in your vivarium or terrarium to achieve your specific reptile's optimum temperature for thermoregulation. An optimum temperature helps to keep your pet healthy and happy in an environment that feels more like home.

What do I need to buy with a solar basking floodlight?

Replicating the warming rays of the sun, a solar basking floodlight can be used with a dimming thermostat to accurately maintain the perfect daytime temperature for your reptile. Each lamp is best used in conjunction with an appropriate UVB bulb or strip light to give them the essential dose of UVB your pet needs to develop strong bones.

You can find many of the other heating and lighting products in the Arcadia reptile range or from other brands like Zoo Med and Exo Terra.

How do I find my specific reptile's optimum temperature?

From Bearded dragons and tortoises to Corn snakes and Leopard geckos, every reptile has different needs when it comes to thermoregulation under heat lamps. To find out exactly what your pet needs, we recommend checking out our care guides which include the correct ambient temperatures, basking area temperatures and further information to ensure your pet's well-being.

How does the Arcadia Solar Basking Floodlight help with colour vision?

The wide flood light from these basking bulbs is made up of infrared heat, to warm your reptile, and UVA light, to help their colour vision and bring the best out of their natural colours, making a great display of your reptile and its' happy habitat.
