okay, what the heck is a coiled UVB light?

is it the ones you put in the heat lamp or is it a type of florecent tube UVB light?

A coiled UVB light I believe would look like this



I highly suggest you use tube lights though,through my experiences and what I heard they seem to be the best.

The "coiled" UVB lights are compact UVB lamps, and look like the photo shown above.

Compact UVB lamps should be avoided as they have been known to cause serious health issues in reptiles. Link
