For best results, we also strongly recommend buying a water heater, water thermometer, and temp gun to help make sure that your turtle's habitat maintains appropriate temperatures.
Note: The heat and UVB bulbs included in this kit may not be strong enough to meet your turtle's requirements, and may need to be replaced. Further adjustments to this kit may be required, according to your specific turtle's individual requirements. Be prepared to upgrade your turtle to a larger tank as it grows.
