Why is your bearded dragon not basking in his light?

There are many causes for this, the first and most common is that their light is too hot. Never use anything higher than a 75 watt bulb. One way to be sure of this is checking to see where your beardie is when he is not basking. If it is in shady areas this most likely means that the light is too hot.

Are red eared sliders aquatic turtles?

They are semi-aquatic. They need a basking light and a basking area such as a floating log or basking platform so that they can climb out of the water to bask. This is essential to their health. If a red eared slider doesn't have an area to bask and can't get out of the water, it's shell will get soft and it will eventually die. They need UVA and UVB light in order to process their food. Heat and light are essential for these turtles. Keep them in water around 70 degrees and provide a basking area and a basking light that has both UVA and UVB rays or two lights, including one UVA and one UVB bulb.

Do red eared sliders need a dry area?

Yes, red-eared sliders need a dry area to get out of the water. Above this area should be a turtle basking lamp. Aquatic turtles will bask daily. Basking keeps the turtle's skin and shell health from fungus while the UV in the light is needed for the turtles growth. Without a dry area and a basking light your turtle will not be healthy and happy.
