Alright, so I recently replaced my old UVB 10.0 UVB tube light with the newer 10.0 UVB HO tube-light from zoomed. Is this alright? I keep seeing people suggesting the 5.0 instead of the 10.0, but the enclosure is rather large. It's a 75 gallon tank that is about 18" tall. I will be building a more proper and shorter enclosure once my little tort is over a year old, but as it is I thought the light being that high up meant a 10.0 HO would be best.

Anyone have any suggestions on this? I actually HAVE a 5.0 if I should be switching it right away.




Thank you!

That's great. I'm glad it's not a coil! :D
I have the 5.0 for the turtles, but the tortoises get 10.0. They work fabulous! Good thinking, UVB rays do dissipate after a certain length, so that's great!
