This picture taken from the reptile lighting group and shows reading from a new coil uv lamp. The following comments are from the top uk uv specialist. So please if you know anyone using coil uv for a tortoise, please share with them how inadequate these bulbs are for tortoises.

These are very suitable for SMALL reptiles with LOW UVB requirements in SMALL terrariums, such as small glass terrariums for crested geckos. Placed horizontally in hoods above mesh.
They are not at all suitable for anything larger or further away.  :wink:
