Zoo Med™ Aquatic Turtle Lighting Combo | reptile Bulbs ..
Like all reptiles, aquatic and semi-aquatic turtles need three kinds of light, all of which should be pointed at their basking area. They need light that approximates normal sunlight, UVA (Ultraviolet A) light, and UVB (Ultraviolet B) light. They also need warmth like the sun would provide if they were living in the wild.Basking lights should be aimed at a spot near the center of the turtle's and placed at a distance that heats that spot to the high end of your turtle's temperature range. For most adult aquatic turtles, the temperature at the hottest spot of the basking area should be about 85 - 90 degrees Fahrenheit (or 29.4 - 32.2 degrees Celsius). For babies and turtles who are sick, it should be between 90 and 95 degrees Fahrenheit (32.2 to 35 degrees Celsius).In nature, aquatic turtles spend a good part of every day basking in the sunlight. The warmth helps raise their body temperatures to help fight germs; and the daylight-spectrum and UVA light are important to activity, mood, feeding, and breeding. The UVB light is essential to Vitamin D3 production, which is vital for proper shell and bone growth. Without the proper lighting, our turtles will get sick and most likely will die long, slow, painful deaths from metabolic bone disease. UVB light really that important to turtles.One convenient way to save both space and money is with a single fixture that performs double duty, like the on the right. Other manufacturers make similar products, but I think this one is a good value. I've also had good success with Zoo Med lighting products in general. If I were setting up a new aquatic turtle habitat today and didn't already have a bazillion turtle lamps stored away in my basement, this is the one I'd buy.
