New tortoise owner, would this lighting be fine for an Egyptian tortoise?

Hello, I am a new tortoise own here. I saw this lighting option on amazon and it seems to have great reviews. But since I am new, I am not too sure if it would be a really bad idea, etc.

Would be happy to hear your thoughts, thank you in advance!
Hello and welcome!

I would not recommend that style of lighting for UV, and it doesn't solve your other issues either.

Start here. There is a heating and lighting breakdown, and a temperate species care sheet near the bottom.
