The lighting of your terrarium depends on the light requirements of your animals:
- Do your animals need a lot or little light?
- Do your animals need UV radiation or not?
- Do your animals need a different temperature during the day and during the night?
- How far away are your animals from the light source?
By answering these questions, you can decide which type of lamp and possibly additional heating mat your animals need. Lamps such as the JBL Reptil Day Halogen are ideal for illuminating terrariums with plants. If the animals require additional UV light, an additional JBL UV-Spot Plus or a JBL L-U-W lamp will be necessary. These also simultaneously produce heat. For animals not in need of UV light, such as many amphibians, the JBL Reptil Day Halogen or JBL LED Daylight are ideal and may, depending on the animal, need to be supplemented with heat-generating technology. For amphibians from colder regions simply omit the heat-generating technology.
