    looks good. you got everything you need. when you turtle gets bigger, it'll get stronger and might shift things around. limit feeding if you wanna control the growth

    Unfortunately such lamp is only of 0.3 UVB, and it’s not accurate . I’m using it as a heat lamp , you should increase to a deep dome with 10.0 UVB

    Also note that if your heat bulb is 5 wattage it might be too close or too hot for a tiny turtle , 2.5 wattage will be good

    @spiritedaffinity Res don't need high UVB such as 10.0. Those are for desert reptiles. UVB 3.0 is good enough.

    Yea 10.0 will cause eye related issue if too near.. it’s for at least 16”

    And they recommend reptisun 10.0, it’s very difficult to buy and also very expensive compare to exo terra ones.. I personally use desert uvb 150.. my turtles eye become like goldfish

    5.0 is fine too , tbh I am using 5.0 for my small slider and 10.0 for my bigger slider . It’s an advise, don’t be quick to judge “nonsense western tips”

    The desert exo terra is what makes The Eye swollen if you know enough of why it does that , 150 is crazy for slider
