A submersible heater is all I have ever used. He might be staying on land more beacuse the water is to cold. 78 degrees sounds good, is that what it is now?

The more UVB the better, so yes, the 10.0 would be best. When setting up the enclosure, it should consist of about half land, half water. The water should be just deep enough for him to sit on the bottom and still beable to reach the surface and breathe. The land area can be setup similiar to what you have now, just be sure to provide a basking area aorund 80-90 degrees.

I am currently in the US Navy, so unfortunetly I have sold off my collection of herps. But over the years have kept many different species of turtles, geckos, lizards, amphibs, and even fish. Looking forward to getting back in the hobby once im out though!
