 Hi:
 
 I  am  from  Mumbai  and  have  a  2  feet  long  turtle  aquarium  with  2  turtles.  I  would  like  to  now  what  type  of  lighting  to  use  for  my  tank.  I  heard  they  require  UVB  as  well  as  heat  lamps.  Where  will  I  find  such  UVB-Heat  lamps  in  Mumbai?  If  anyone  has  these  lights  can  call  me  on  09619981938
 
 Thanks

 You  could  use  a  CFL  of  about  15watts.
 
 And  provide  the  turtles  with  sunlight  whenever  possible.
