Hi all, (AMAZOA!)

I am setting up a new indoor enclosure for two baby elongateds and would like some advice. It seems they hide a lot and dont like bright light? I have a photo at http://instagram.com/p/dNj_vcRtzb/ of the enclosure as it stands now. I got home from FL at noon and have been working on setting up the two elongateds, a new cornsnake and 2 frogs since. This is as far as I have gotten on the elongateds.

My main question is, is that too much of a uv tube for them. Is it too bright? Too long? I need to get some hides. I couldnt fit anything else in my luggage or would have bought some in Daytona. The tortoises are supposed to arrive tomorrow and I want to be ready (fingers crossed they make it ok!)

It is hard to see dimensions on the enclosure but it is 4 feet by 3 feet.

Thanks for any advice!
Carole
