I am looking for some recommendations for UVB/UVA for my hatchling Redfoot. I am wondering who prefers the MVB alone with a CHE or the UV strip light with CHE.

I am wondering which you prefer and if you use an additional basking day light. **PLEASE no debate over redfoots basking/not basking. I am just looking for how other members set up their enclosures, redfoot or not.***

Important things to note: It is a 5 month old Redfoot, 40 Gallon glass tank and I am leaning towards a closed chamber, but not 100% decided.

Any recommendations for brand/wattage is also extremely helpful!

Any help is greatly appreciated!

RF seem to do best with the tube fluorescent UVB from what I have read on here over the years.

Also take a read on the tortoise library.com. A members site great for RF owners as well as others.
