    What UVB fluorescent for an 8 year old red foot tort?

    Upgrading my current table to a new one, I've been told a uvb fluorescent tube is better than the normal uvb light I have. So my question is, what sort of uvb fluorescent tube should I get (5.0,10.0 and what length)? And what brand (Currently I'm using equipment from Exo Terra, are they good?)...

    ZooMed T8 10.0 Tube Lighting Question

    I am currently using the ZooMed 10.0 T8 18" tube light for my baby Russian tortoise's enclosure. It is about 15" away from him, which is as close as I can get due to the size of the tank. Is that an ok distance or too far? Would a reflector help if it's too far? Thanks!
