I've been researching the best UVB bulbs for Red Foot Tortoise. The bulbs I've been looking into include Zoo Med ReptiSun T8 10.0 UVB Lamp, Arcadia, Mega-Ray, Powersun, and the bulbs from ReptileUV website such as the ReptileUV 100watt SunStream. I'm not sure which one is best. There are too many options.

Thank you for the help. I just have to figure out how to install it since I have no cover for the top of his enclosure. It’s made of wood
With an open topped enclosure, it's going to be impossible to maintain your needed high humidity. (Over 70%) And wood makes a poor choice for a high humidity enclosure because it will rot and grow mold.
Do a search for CLOSED CHAMBER ENCLOSURES.
RF need a tropical environment. Warm. Not hot. Shady. Not bright. And high humidity.

80°-86° (82° is the target)
70% and more humidity
