Habitat - Indoor :: UVB Comparison from Various Light Sources

Turtle tank setups and other indoor configurations.

Hello all,

Since I'm curious how various light sources compare in terms of UVB, I did
a little googling today and found these:

http://www.anapsid.org/uvtable.html
http://www.anapsid.org/jamesball.html

It's pretty informational, I think. At first, I wanted to find out how cloudy
sky compares to clear sky. After looking at the numbers, I guess it's still
good for a turtle to be underneath morning sky to get sunshine. Longer time
if it's cloudy.

I still can't get a UVB bulb, so I bask Ramen outside every morning.
