 UVA or UVB

I can only get one light for my anole. Should I get a UVB light or a UVA light? I already have a light ( don’t worry ) but I’m not sure what kind it is. How can I tell? Also, can I turn their light off at night? Thx!

Get a uvb reptisun 5.0. Your suppose to have a day time basking bulb, nighttime bulb and uvb bulb their all mandatory you can’t have one without the other. You can tell by the heat basking bulbs gets really hot with the uvb not so much because basking bulbs put out heat while the uvb put out uvb rays. But try to get a bulb that puts out uvb/uva both and I’m hoping you have supplements because without it the uvb bulb is useless the lizards will still get mbd.

My mom won’t let me get a million different bulbs, so I’m just gonna turn the light off at night. When we get a new bulb, I’ll get a bulb that has both UVA and UVB. Thx!
