Default What do you Guys do?

With housing for hatchlings?

Being as they are so small, how do you organise a basking light and things?

Can you give me some ideas please? .

my hatchlings go straight into the full size table so the set up is the same as for an adult.

Agree with the above, there doesnt need to be any differences. Basking spot, good temps, light quality and UV output all do the same for any tort in a good sized table to accompany his/her size. xx
