First, Thank you for responding and taking the time to answer my question! and the reason i chose that bulb is the store recommended it because it supposedly gave out a little bit of both as far as heat and uva/uvb went. I do notice that he goes to shade from the light when i turn it on but i generally turn it on in the mornings ( i would be cranky too if i had a light shined on me that early!). I provide plenty of cover by covering half of the enclosure with a board. For warmth- I actually have a heating(pad) spot on one side of the enclosure, im aware that they can get burned that way but the pad i use isn't hot enough to get any burns (Ive tested it extensively). It isnt even totally touching the enclosure all the way, over half is off to the side. It keeps my turtle perfectly warm and since it is inside my house its generally warmer than it gets outside.

id like to ask is there any bulb that you do recommend that works and has been tested? Should i switch to a 5.0 or 10.0 bulb? I cant seem to find any that has a clean bill of health that you screw in a dome like mine does, everything is in "tubes". Any recommendations would help, if at all possible!

Well i said he/she because it is both, I have a hermaphrodite box turtle. I let my little guy walk when weather permits.
