SC : ). Unfortunately, no sunshine for a few days due to storms but I did order his new UVB today and HE HAS OPENED HIS EYES!In the meantime, until you get the new bulb, turn off the one you've been using.
Your Russian will be fine without UVB for a few days.
In fact, if you can take him outside for an hour, two or three x/week, you don't need indoor UVB at all.
You say you're in Charleston...which one? South Carolina or West Virginia? Or Tennessee or Illinois, or Oregon?
