Hi,

I have a map turtle and 2 musk turtles in a 75 gallon all fully grown. I am struggeling with lighting it at the moment. Im currently using https://www.amazon.co.uk/Reptile-Vi...TF8&qid=1521990631&sr=8-16&keywords=heat+lamp which keeps blowing bulbs at a rate of around once every two months. I had a uv lamp aswell that took tubes that broke completly aswell. So I am now looking for the best simplests way to get the correct lighting for my turtles.

Any help is apprectiated

They suggest Minimum 30cm above your animal . Just hang it higher if you worry about water . Also uvb requirements for turtle is less strict than tortoise .
