My estimate is about 40-50+ on the bulb alone. But actually the bulb isn't really required, it is just needed for stimulating vit D3(aid in calcium absorption) and basking(reduce risk parasite, bacteria growth/regulating temperature) for your mbt.

You can overcome these factors with vit supplements, a heating lamp located at your turtle dock and like always CLEAN water.

Or bring them outside when you have time..

I used to do that for my RES. Better than lightbulb because it's a higher %.

I second that alternative too. Unlike pnts u can easily bring res or mbt outside to bask. In the matter of fact, pnts dont even need to bask.

a more reliable and reasonable way is to get Arcadia UVB Fluorescent tube instead.
just use fish light casing for the FL bulb.

Just a little update. How are bros' PNTs too? Doing well and active? Do post some pics Mine is currently on deworming meds for about 5 days now as a preventive measure, might be an overkill but however no other side effects and is still very active and always hungry
