The habitat looks great. Carole I personally would not use a 10.0 bulb. That much UV can be harmful to young tortoises eyes. I'm sure you can get one in the 2.0-5.0 range. The bulbs usually have a chart on the paperwork that gives you an idea on what height to mount them.

Night heat may not be much of an issue until winter as they can have it dip into the mid 60 with no problem at night.----Richard
