realUV LED Strip Lights for Aquatic Turtles
Would the UV LED strip be good for my aquatic turtle? The tank I have came with LED lighting to look nice however turtles require UVB lighting for their shell. The tank is closed so a regular lamp won't work. I'm hoping I could stick your product on the inside cover and provide her w the required UVB light she needs.
The first step in checking for compatibility would be ensuring that the inner cover area of the tank is waterproof. This is because our LED strip lights are not designed to come into contact with water or moisture, and are not IP rated. The presence of moisture or water on the products could cause an unsafe electrical hazard and would void the product warranty.
As such, generally speaking, we discourage the use of LED strip light products within installations where they may come into contact with water.
However, if the inner cover of the tank is indeed waterproof, and could offer protection against outside moisture, then the RealUV™ LED Strip Lights product could be a great option for your aquatic turtles!
