LED lighting is the big new thing in reptile/amphibian keeping having been used in marine fish keeping for a number of years. The benefits are high output lighting, low power consumption and long lifespan. The units are relatively expensive but this far outweighs the cost of replacing bulbs over say a 25 year life.
Please note the Solar Raptor items are special order from the German manufacturers and delivery can take up to 3 weeks (usually less though) as we only carry small numbers in stock.

Arcadia Jungle Dawn
The Arcadia Jungle Dawn is a full spectrum LED plant growth lamp with proven results.

Z-holder for the LED sunstrip
The Z-Holder allows mounting of the LED Sunstrips in almost any situation. For instance it can be placed on the side windows of the vivarium & the two holes at the top of the Z-Holders alternatively allow permanent installation.
It is constructed of ABS plastic (acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene copolymer). This plastic material has high impact resistance, high surface hardness and also has good oil resistance.
Plate Holder for LED sunstrip
The LED Sunstrip can easily be installed on each tank. The Plate Holder is the universal connection between the LED and Sunstrip Strip Holder, this combination is longitudinally movable and can be rotated 90 degrees to the left or right. The strip holder can access all standard glass thicknesses by means of nylon screws but the appropriate-sised holes must be pre-drilled into the glass.
It is constructed of ABS plastic (acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene copolymer). This plastic material has high impact resistance, high surface hardness and also has good oil resistance.

LED sunstrip Bridge Holder
A very simple way of mounting an LED Sunstrip to the side of a vivarium.
For the smaller sunstrips i.e. 200 - 400mm length use a single bridge, for anything longer use 2 bridge holders so that the weight of the sunstrip is evenly distributed.
LED sunstrip T5 / T8 holder
The T5/T8-holders permits the conversion of existing systems with the T5 or T8 LED Sunstrip. The power supply of the LED Sunstrip is ensured by an external low voltage power supply (sold separately)
