Hi tomcannon , without the thermosate the 100w only gets to 95f on the basking log with the thermometer on the spot and the 150w goes up to 117f ,with the thermometer on the log at the basking spot so i have found out now i have to plug in the thermostat and move the thermostat prob away from the basking spot untill i get about 110f, so i think i have worked that out if it is right !. The next question is as soon as the light gets up near the temperature it is set at it dims quite a lot nearly turns off in fact repeatadly is this normal i thought it would dim slightly but not go out shourly the bulb wont last long with it doing that all the time , is the thermostat faulty its a microclimate b1 dimmer stat . i havent got any pics at the moment as i have just set it up but i will try and get some soon , the vivarium is the one with the basking lamp on top outside the viv and the distance from the basking log to the lamp is 8 inches thanks .
