If you don`t want to get a long tube, like a Reptisun 5.0, you could get something like an ESU UVB Coil Lamp, which looks like a flourescent corkscrew and screws into a socket like a regular bulb, and then clamp it over the basking area along with a bulb for heat. People who use them generally like them, but be careful not to bump them around or they will stop working. If you get one, use a ceramic socket (not plastic). They can be bought at PetsMart and probably similar places for $20-$25 dollars.

It was. Can`t vouch for prices (could have been a special), but shouldn`t be much more than that.
