Topics I've Started

Hi there,

I recently got my hermann hatchling, and every so often when feeding her I add some leaves from a Florette crispy salad, as I read on here that it was okay for them to eat it in moderation. She seems to really enjoy the raddichio, as she always goes for this first, I was wondering how often she could eat it a week? Because since she enjoys it I would like to incorporate more into her diet, but I'm worried this could have a negative effect on her wellbeing.

Thank you!

Lighting Help!

I'm new to tortoises and am hoping to get a hatchling Hermann in the next few months, for now I'm just getting everything set up and ready.

One thing I can't seem to get my head around is the lighting and heat, I have a tortoise table that is 32 inches in length and 14.5 inches in width.

I've been reading through the forums and have seen a lot of people mention using a arcadia t5 tube light, if I had something like this would it need to be placed along the top of the table going length ways? Would this light only provide uvb and uva rays with no heat? If so, what would be the best bulb for heat?

Thank you for taking the time to read this!
