This question already has an answer here:
In continuation of my question Do aquarium turtles require basking everyday?
- I will purchase a UV bulb for turtles but which one should I purchase UVA, UVB or UVC?
- How much distance should I keep between basking area (water surface) and bulb? I don't want their soft skin gets burned.
As of now the distance between the water surface and single CFL (8 W) is almost 12 to 15 inches.
