    Redfoot ARE DIFFERENT. Don't give just any tortoise a diet like that! Try not to feed the same thing every day. Offer variety.

    RF food

    Feed every day. And when possible feed at about the same time every day. Feed several items each day. For example I fed mine banana, cherry tomatoes, kale,zucchini, hibiscus flowers and mushrooms. Don't feed too much of any one thing. Redfoot can eat hundreds of different things and a diet of...

    The EXTREME cold winter is here

    I can't even imagine dealing with that right now. If the COLD weather was that bad. I'd just keep the Koi and Goldfish. They do fine under a sheet of ice.

    Substrate

    Yes. Correct. Do not use moss in a tortoise enclosure. It gets eaten and doesn't get digested completely if at all and can cause impaction

    Substrate

    For daytime you need a T5 HO UVB tube light. It's going to give the tortoise UVB and provide the light. Describe or send a photo of your UVB "BULB". If it screws in, I do not recommend it.

    Substrate

    I'm the wrong guy to ask about humidifiers. While I DO use them at night for my Chameleons. I don't recommend using them for tortoises. A correctly performing "closed chamber" enclosure will hold in warmth as well as humidity. It will actually create the humidity.

    Shell Rot? Eye problems?

    Was that a desert tortoise? Do you have other tortoises and if so, did they come in close contact with that one?
