Re: UVBulb/Basking Lamp

Okay-the more I read, the more confused I get. I have an Iguana Light 5.0 uvb over the basking area and an Eclipse Natural Daylight over the other section. I still need a heat lamp? and if so, what is best to use? where and how close should it be placed? etc....

UVBulb/Basking Lamp

I just bought a 125 gallon tank for my RES. They are about 19 months old now and I am getting ready to bring them inside for the fall/winter.

Well, thank goodness. I thought I was the oldest one on the sight. I just turned 52 in July. Thumbs up to the other \"old\" animal lovers in the world.

Turtle Tank????

I have heard several times about a \"turtle tank.\" One that has a hole halfway down to allow a filter to be installed into shallow water instead of having an extended tube hanging from the top of the tank. Any info on this? Know where to purchase one? Thanks.
