    Mega-Ray 50w Metal Halide

    Price:  £27.50

    Mega-Ray Metal Halide The new Mega-Ray Metal Halide lighting, is only to be used by experienced hobbyists and professionals with an appreciation for natural lighting.

    It is impossible to set up proper lighting husbandry with only one bulb. Dr Brames states "reptile lighting is a process, not a bulb". Even with the great compliments we received with the new Mega-Ray Metal Halide Narrow Flood and the Halide Zoologist bulbs, this is still true, the halide provides "mid-day sun" and is excellent when combined with a more golden, softer light for early morning and evening.

    These bulbs are extremely bright, and much more like the natural sun after 8 or 9 AM in the morning and should not be considered for use for the complete 12 hr photo period and should only be used in the over head position. 8 hours a day is more then sufficient for the new Mega-Ray Halide. Lamps in basking areas should be on multiple timers to allow a more natural lighting effect. As an example:  Halogen on in basking area at 7am, Halide and additional heat (halogen or heat projector) on at 8:30am, 5000K tube daylight fluorescents at 10am, and off in the opposite order during the afternoon. This will reduce stress and prolong the life of any captive creature.


    The Metal Halide bulbs will need a ballast to operate it.
