UVB Tube length for 4 ft x 2 ft enclosure?

Postby JumbosDaddy » Sun Apr 11, 2021 8:28 am

Hi, I have a 4 ft x 2 ft x 2 ft enclosure on order, and want to select the right length T5 HO tube to go inside the enclosure. Would you recommend a 24" or 36" tube?

Depends on the bulb you get.

10.0/12% go with the 34 inch bulb.

14% go with the 22 inch bulb.

I use a 24" fixture in my Zen 4x2x2 - and the bulbs I alternate between the 12% Arcadia Desert and the Reptisun 10.0 T 5
