    Yes I did get two, only one is currently hooked up. One 75 watt UVA and a UVB. I forgot to get the other dome so only the UVA is hooked up.

    Your welcome, the reptile guard or w/e is unnecessary so don't be religious about it, I tend to avoid any chemicals but my softshells are a lot more sensitive then RES. You got 2 lights right? An incandescent bulb wont give you UVB

    Btw: Thanks for everything. Currently I am looking for a big tank w/ a stand on Craigslist. But right now I have a 1o gallon tank with a dock, water filter, lamps and everything! The filter is set up, but the lights aren't quite yet. I got a UVB and a 75 watt UVA bulb, and the dome to go with it. AND I bought this thing called a Moss Ball which helps get rid of odors. AND, ReptiSafe to put in the water, AND ReptoMin Baby food. My turtles are WAY happier already and a lot more active.

    What size baby and what size/brand pellets? if its a hatching then 3-4 mini reptomin pellets each a day is fine but the don't stay that small long, if you put some feeder guppys and minnows with them you can feed them less and if they are hungry they will hunt the fish - if you don't loose any fish then they aren't that hungry
