    Arcadia T5 6% or 12% for Russian tortoise

    Arcadia T5 6% or 12% for Russian tortoise

    I've been searching through the threads to find information on the difference between the Arcadia T5 6% and 12% UV tubes.

    New indoor enclosure for Russian Tortoise

    The wood chips are cypress mulch (Zoo Med). It was one of the suggested substrate choices I saw on this forum, so I thought it was okay. I’ll keep an eye on his feces for pebbles.. so far every time he bites a radicchio leaf that’s lying on the pebbles he spits it out.
