The UV light suggested by my local reptile store was a 13w Repti Glo 10.0 UVB.

I just want to make sure this isn't too strong of a UVB. Let me know if i should back down to a 5.0 UVB.

Also instead of getting the long tube I got the compact coil type (like such http://www.petsmart.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2752556) In past experiences i have only used the long tubes, but the retailer insisted that these are no different. Any criticism on these compact UVB bulbs would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks
