Terrarium lighting in the Maxi Zoo online shop
Equip terrariums with the right lighting
Does the bearded dragon like to bask in the sun or does it prefer to lie in the shade? In the terrarium, lighting is an important factor for the well-being of the animals. A species-appropriate source of light and heat is essential, especially for cold-blooded animals, such as reptiles. But amphibians, spiders and many other terrarium animals also love basking in the sun. Using special lamps, you can mimic the light conditions of their warm, humid or even desert habitat. Of course, the lamps also set the scene for the entire terrarium landscape, allow observation of diurnal and nocturnal animals and stimulate plant growth. When selected correctly, the right light intensity contributes to the health of reptiles without consuming too much energy. Choose from a wide range of energy-saving LED lamps, heat-emitting fluorescent tubes, light-intensifying reflectors and much more.
Buy terrarium lighting: light keeps animals healthy
Not all light is the same. Whether basic lighting or spotlights: each animal species needs a certain light spectrum. Ultraviolet radiation UV-B prevents diseases such as softening of the bones. Tip: When considering light intensity and UV output, always bear in mind the size of your terrarium. You can buy lighting for diurnal desert animals as well as a lamp that imitates moonlight for small night owls with a low UV requirement: Maxi Zoo offers the right lighting for every animal species.
Whether daylight lamp with full spectrum or reduced UV radiation: the light output should be right to ensure that the entire terrarium is illuminated. In addition, reflectors can increase the light intensity by reflecting the light emitted upwards and preventing light loss.
Buy terrarium lighting online to create heat sources
Cold-blooded animals such as geckos, iguanas or chameleons need warm places to regulate their body temperature. Basking sun spot lamps are excellent for small areas. This allows the animals to warm up and then retreat back into the shade. In addition, there are heat-emitting daylight lamps that raise the air temperature of the terrarium so that it corresponds to that of the natural habitat.

There is a large selection of light sources for terrariums. The combination of varying lighting is often necessary. Halogen lamps and especially LED lamps consume significantly less energy than incandescent bulbs, for example. This energy-saving and long-lasting lighting allows a wide range of light intensity and colour temperature. Therefore, they are available both as bright daylight lamps and as soft light with a cooler light colour for crepuscular and nocturnal animals. However, as these lamps do not emit heat, you may need additional UV and heat-emitting lamps.
T5 and T8 fluorescent tubes produce a lot of warmth and a broad light spectrum that can also be perceived by the animals. To enhance the effect, it is advisable to install an additional reflector in the terrarium.
