Thermostats are literally lifesavers when it comes to keeping reptiles. We bang-on about thermostats but for good reason. If you want to find out more about thermostats, take a look here at our thermostat information sheet
Habistat thermostats have proven - in our experience - to be some of the most reliable, efficient and effective thermostats on the market and we personally use Habistat thermostats on all our tanks at both of our stores.
Thermostats can be used to control heat sources and there is a thermostat suitable for virtually all heat sources including incandescent and infra-red bulbs, ceramic heaters and bulbs, heat mats and heat strips.
We always have thermostats in stock and they come in two ranges - Standard or Digital Thermostats. Essentialy, both ranges do the job of controlling your heat sources as well as each other, however the digital forms offer a bit more with regard to user feedback and programming options.
We stock a range of UV lighting to suit the needs of any reptile or amphibian. We stock both Arcadia and Exo Terra UV lighting at various strengths.
We stock both the compact and tube UVB bulbs so that there are options available for all sizes of tank
Arcadia produce what are arguably the best UVB tubes on the market. We stock both the Euro range at 10% strength and their D3+ range at 12% strength.
Both ranges are ideal for virtually all reptiles. We recommend using the 10-12% tubes even for chameleons and amphibians and providing them with suitable shaded areas so that they have the ability to choose the intensity of UV that they requirefor themselves.
Compact UV bulbs are ideal for smaller tanks where there may not be room for a UV tube or for use with the Exo Terra canopies.
We stock both the Exo Terra range of UV compact bulbs, as well as the Arcadia 10% UV compact bulb range. The Exo Terra range comes in both 5.0% and 10.0% UVB and in 13w and 26w strengths.
Starter units are required for UV tubes and come in a few styles. We stock Arcadia starter units for Dry tanks and also Ultra-Seal starter units, with water resistant seals for enclosures where misting is required.
We also keep in stock a selection of Hagen starter units, which also come with rubber sealed end caps to prevent water getting to the ends of your UV tube.
From simple incandescent spot bulbs, to infra-red and ceramic heaters. We supply heating sources suitable for all shapes and sizes of vivaria and for all species.
We also supply a range of heat mats, including the NEW Habistat High Powered range.
Our heat lamp range has been chosen to provide you with the greatest selection of heating options for your vivarium whilst making sure there are no products that do not perform to our own high standards.
We stock Infra-Red (BC and ES) fitting and Moonlight (ES) bulbs from the Komodo Range for those who prefer a darker terrarium - great for nocturnal species! We also keep in stock a range of cheaper coloured and clear incandescent bulbs in both BC and ES fittings.
If incandescent and Infra-Red bulbs are not powerful enough to heat a particularly large enclosure, your best option is to use Ceramic heat bulbs. We supply ceramic heat bulbs from 75-250W, as well as all the ceramic fittings and protective cage guards required for safe use of ceramic bulbs.
Habistat heat mats are the most reliable and efficient heat mats we have come across and we have a large selection available for all sizes of vivaria.
Habistat's standard heat mats are suitable for being placed inside wooden vivaria as a hot-spot and are safe for use with most species, excluding tortoises and some larger monitors. They do not overheat and therefore rarely need to be combined with a Mat-Stat, unless the heat mat is heating a small enclosure with little ventilation.
We also stock the new range of Habistat High powered heat mats, which are great for use with Exo Terra glass tanks, where they can be stuck to the side of the tank using the self-adhesive strips to heat the entire enclosure and produce a great hot spot too! A Mat-stat is required for safe use of these heat mats but they do produce a great amount of heat and can be used as a primary heat source in some circumstances.
