Default UVB needed for RETFs?

Hi-

I have a 36" x 18" x 16" Zilla Critter Cage, which will be 1/2 covered length-wise with a plastic cover. Over the screened portion; I have a 36" long standard aquarium T8 fixture. I see 36" UVB bulbs are made, my question is, what percentage of UVB am I shooting for? 2, 5 or 10?

I've read contradictory info where UVB is/isnt required for RETFs.

Thoughts?

Thanks in advance...

The don't require it but it won't hurt. They are nocturnal so they are not out during the day when the sun is out.

Thanks. What would you recommend for the UVB rating? 5%?

2.5%-5% is fine.
