T5 Light Fixture

Postby MrChickenNugget » Fri Jan 15, 2021 10:40 am

Hey guys and gals I have some questions regarding T5 light fixtures. As far as Reptisun bulbs go is the light fixture that is made for them the only one that will work? If not is there a better one?

the Arcadia 12% bulbs work -- I think the Sunblasters Nano dome work as well -- there were issues w/ the Sunblasters a while back but they have since gotten them fixed -- Arcadias work in the Zoo Med fixtures

Right, any T5 bulb of the same length should fit into any brand of fixture. It's size based rather than brand based. The different brands produce different types of fixtures and varying quality of reflectors etc, but you can use the bulbs interchangeably.
