Thanks, I know the bottom one they do come through the back, I knocked a few slats out of the vent and fed them through there, had to drill loads, the ceramic holder was a nut and bolt fitting rather than screws, and I did the same with the bulb guards rather than keep undoing the screws (and weakening the wood) when I need to change the bulb, so not too bothered about drilling just automatically copied what 'd done in the gecko viv, but by the time it come to doing the ground floor viv I was knackered and realised it'd be easier to just run the cable round the outside and in through the vents
I keep my reptiles in vivaria, heated with ceramics. If you need set-up help, and can't find the answer here;
