Hey all, i was just wondering which is the best mercury vapour bulb? i have been told they are better for tortoises than a UV strip and heat lamp

I have a lucky reptile bright control pro 50w but isnt this a metal halide?

cheers all, yeah i really like arcadia and have 2 of their 12% t5 UVB strips, i have a solarmeter 6.2 to test the strength and must say they are very impressive although nothing competes to natural sunlight on a good day (i guess its hard for companies to do this) so we have to use what is closest and at the moment that is arcadia :)

going off that article it suggests a strip would be better as it would cover more of the viv ?
