    Hi I am looking to trade my 4ft beech wood vivarium with a full heat set up for a 2ft or 3ft vivarium as the 4ft is to big for my requirements. I am located in the salisbury area in south England. If anyone wants to swap please leave me a message. I'm looking to do this asap :)

    Is this bulb suitable for both UV and heat production for an indoor setup? Also, if it is the right thing to use, roughly how often should they be replaced? (For a tortoise) Thanks
