Hello!

Sorry for all the questions..... I'm just learning. I never thought I would get this into turtles! lol

If I have a proper UVB light and feed my turtle food that says it has vitamin D3 and calcium. Do I need to feed them powdered calcium and D3?

Thanks,
Nick

no u can ask as much as u want, what are we here for? :)

u don't have to unless u feel ur turtle's shell isn't that strong then u might want to consider calcium supplements..just one thing, is it only a UVB bulb or both UVA and UVB? cz turtles need both rays/whatever

feel free to ask anytime cz we enjoy turtle talk:D

i don't know about lighting but if it says UVB then maybe it's only UVB..but anyways seems like reptisun is a good brand so maybe there's nothing much to worry about
