The diet and conditions are the same for both species, but marginated grow bigger, so will possibly need more room for the new pen/ enclosure. They are both Mediterranean species but from different areas, which is why they can't be kept together :) Hope this helps.

Either a strip lamp uvb with starter unit, plus a separate heat lamp for hot spot basking, or an all in one heat and uvb combi. I use the megaray combined but still use a strip lamp for extra light levels.
