    I am upgrading my tortoise enclosure and am unsure of where to place my light bulb (heat). It is currently in the corner of her medium plastic tub.

    We've built a larger two-level tortoise table, and I'm not sure if the light should still go in a corner, or if it should be In the center? Any advice is appreciated.

    Hi, thank you! I've been reading through the forum for months, but didn't join until recently. :)

    This is the new enclosure. It's still a work in progress with setting it up. I'll be planting grass seeds on the top layer, so I think it will need some light/heat as well. I'm thinking about maybe having two lights, since there's a large area to cool down on the bottom part. :)
