Product Details
Description
The Avian Sun 5.0 UVB compact fluorescent provides birds with safe levels of beneficial UVB and UVA for physical and psychological health. UVB enables birds to synthesize vitamin D3 for proper calcium metabolism which is necessary for normal growth, maintenance of strong bones, and egg production. UVA is visible to birds, enabling them to recognize mates, locate food, and identify different species. Without UVA, birds are essentially colorblind

Pricey but unavoidable
3 Star Review   By ELIZABETH EVANS on PetStore.com - Feb 27, 2014   

Pretty expensive for a "light bulb". First one lasted about a month before the lamp, which isn't weighted heavily enough, tipped over and the bulb broke. Before long I'll have to take my birds outside for sunlight.

Aviansun 5.0 UVB lights
4 Star Review   By DIMITRI DEHARAK on PetStore.com - Oct 13, 2012   

just received the Zoo Med Aviansun 5.0 UVB Compact Fluorescent Bulbs I order 2 of them for my 2 greys, They are sure bright. Directions say that while they are new they have a "burn in periold" you should place them 18-20" above your birds head. Ok i will do that... The only problem i have with these and it is not the bulbs is one of my greys keep looking at the bulb.. I had to place the bulb so that most of the light shines from the back towards the front of the bird. otherwise no problem as of yet.

Great value!
5 Star Review   By PAMELA WILSON on PetStore.com - Aug 30, 2012   

I bought the Zoo Med AvianSun Deluxe Floor Lamp and was searching for the bulb because I couldn't find it here at first. I am happy I checked a bit more because this is almost half the price of another online pet chain store so such a great value here! My bird is sooo happy and gets much needed benefits from this light! We have tons of tree's around our house so we don't get too much sunlight so this really comes in handy.

I have only had this product for a few days, but it seems provide all the necessary light my bird needs. Also, the instructions for use were very informative.
