    I like mvbs the best as they give heat and UVB.
    All my tortoises do is bask all day so I like knowing they are gettin both without having to move around the cage.

    Mvbs are mercury vapor bulbs. You can find them at most pet stores. The two I see at petsmart are "power sun" and "solar glo".

    This would depend on the size of the enclosure and the type of light bulb. So play around with lower watttages first to see what you need.

    All my torts are in large enclosures with a 100watt mvb.
