Ok so for a long time now i have been talking about putting together my 55 gallon tank for the poor turtles... and it has FINALLY been done! WHOO HOO~~ Oh and I put both Super Star & Buster Brown together, and they seem to be getting along great! They each have their own basking area (not that they know which one belongs to who! :lol: )

The lamp we have for both sides "Provides beneficial UVA rays which promotes breeding, feeding and are beneficial to your reptile's psychological well-being." And also heat.. Do I still need another lamp?

As long as the lamp provides UV light for the turtles, it should be fine. :D

u also need a UVB lamp, which transform the vitD in order for them to assimilate calcium...without it,some shell problem might appear...

yaya is correct--you need both a UVB light and a heat lamp. UV can be either, and you only said you have a light that emits UVA rays.
