The ShadeDweller-MiniKit by Arcadia Reptile is the perfect choice for those that use shallow vivaria and would like to incorporate essential UV-B. 

This easy to fit kit arrives complete with flicker-free electronics, specially made flat reflector, fittings kit, power cable, switch, linking cable and the 7% UV-B, 8w ShadeDweller™ lamp.

ShadeDweller-MiniKit will allow you to fit UV-B within vivarium’s that may once have been too shallow to allow safe fitting. Its low profile and effective reflector will enable you to provide the perfect UV Index at 20-30cm from the lamp to the animals back, when seated at the basking point.

The kit arrives with a single power cable and a further ‘link cable’ which allows you to link up to 10 units from one power source. Lamp changes are simple via a simple ‘insert and twist’ lamp holder.

Perfect for enclosures up to 12”/30cm high.

ShadeDweller-MiniKit is the perfect choice for crepuscular species such as the leopard Gecko or even hatchling snakes when kept in shallow enclosures, racks or tubs. ShadeDweller™ is also suitable for use with Amphibians and Inverts.

For far too long Crepuscular animals have not had dedicated lighting systems, ShadeDweller™ by Arcadia Reptile seeks to right this wrong.

    Perfect size and...

    Posted by Henry Foster on 21st Dec 2021

    Having a leopard gecko I have to be careful about the strength of the UVB and not flood my enclosure. This ready to go unit provides just the right amount of UVB and visible light. It is not too much Visible light as keeping albino geckos they can be sensitive to it. My only criticisms are with the mounting design. Due to the fact the unit is designed to slide onto two brackets you cannot fix both brackets in place otherwise you can't slide it on due to them being opposite sides and both wanting to slide outwards from the unit. The reflector also does not do alot, I stuck mine on with a sticky pad but its just a hazy bit of rough metal. A mirror finish would have been better. All in all though for the price this unit does exactly what it was designed to do and suitable for smaller setups and sensitive creatures.

    Fantastic, works how it should - wasn’t too impressed with the Mirror it doesn’t really do anything and had to bend to make it useful. In my leopard gecko tank I’ve read that the best place for the shade dweller to go is at the back in the middle and the mirrow is useless But other than the mirror the light does it’s job no problems yet very happy with it and so is my little gecko

    Great Customer Service & Great Light.

    Posted by Charlotte Collins on 1st Jul 2020

    I unfortunately got a faulty shadedweller which only lasted a week before the bulb blew. I contacted customer service asking if they could send a replacement bulb out. They got back to me quickly and said it would be better to send another kit out as it was probably a fault with the unit. They sent this out and I got it within a couple of days. The new one works great and I have a very happy gecko again! Thank you!

    Worth Every...

    I thought these would be a bit of a waste with my leopard geckos seeing as they dont come out their hides until dark, but the change was almost instant, especially for my younger one. He sploots for hours a day keeping his head in his hide, and my 16 year old one is eating like crazy. Only slight negative from me is they really need to some with a rubber cap for each end of the kit, I've had to cover the end of my link with electrical tape due to the live currant. Other than that, they're great

    Great product. I got 3 for my leopard geckos and they all run off one powder source perfectly. Only issue is there's not a suitable sized stopper for the end of the very last one, so I've had to cover it with electrical tape due to to the live current. I think if they're supplied with a protective cap for both the power intake and linking ports, it would be perfect.

    When I first switched the light on, my corn snake began exploring his enclosure, examining everything in the new light. Had it for about a week now and he seems very pleased with it!
