Hello, I am planning to get a meter to measure the UV output of my bulb. I am aware that the solar meter and zoo med brands are basically the same thing. But I'm a little confused as to the 6.2 and 6.5 models. I've heard that Tortoise owners are starting to prefer the 6.5 UV index model, is that true? I am also having a little trouble finding that model. Where can I get one? Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

While the 6.5 is becoming more favored, I think both can be beneficial. I'd recommend Light Your Reptiles but they seem to be out of stock.

Yes it seems like they are out of stock in a lot of places. I will probably go with the 6.5 since it's not that big of a price difference. If I can find one that is.
