Can anyone tell me please if spruce bark is ok as a substrate and
can I use a Che for basking? I do use Arcadia Jungle Dawn LED bars for daylight.
I can only find Arcadia flood bulbs in the UK at £ 3.99 per bulb. Crazy price for a bulb.

-No spruce bark. Fine grade fir bark is best.
-CHEs are for maintaining ambient temps, not for basking. The Arcadia floods are what you need.
-The LEDs are good for ambient light.
-In the UK you will need a good UV tube. The Arcadia HO tubes are best for this. Don't use a compact florescent bulb. Non HO tubes produce very little UV.
