What do I need UV lighting for an aquarium of 40 cm x 40 cm for my Red Eared Slider Turtle??
"My tank is about 40 cm x 40 cm (square) and has a height of about 20cm-I have a water filter I do not need a heater because I have a thermometer and shows the degree of water which is usually around of 27-28 C – My IC is about 8-9 months old and is 9-10cm – I feed vegetables, dried shrimp, etc. I want to know what type of UV light is necessary for my IC. The Walt, type, etc. Thanks in advance PS Tips and suggestions are appreciated. I do not want to buy something off eBay without knowing for sure what I need is right. I went to that website that gave me, but no companion could not find anything related to turtles. Give me the link on RES if you know of any. Thanks compact UV bulb, but what about Walt? i dont want to burn my IC to get something too strong for him.
ZooMed ReptiSun 5.0 (or 10.0) the end-all/be-all of UV-B radiation, light bulbs fluorescent, or ReptiGlo is 8.0 or reptiles have a lamp and is said inside … .. 250 watt maximum type A lamp that does not have to go to ebay to buy these .. just go to your local pet store … Remember to change every 6 to 12 months If you want to record your turtle must have a thermometer to take the sun so you can maintain a eye on it …. You will need a water heater for the colder months … as temperature fluctuations can make for a sick turtle ..
