a 60w spot might not keep your overall viv temp at the required highs..

the way i do it in my frilleds viv is i have a 75w spot/basking bulb.. and a 150w ceramic on a stat so JUST INCASE the temperature does drop to below what is required the ceramic comes on just to bump it up.. and overnight the stat is set to 18 instead of 30 and the spots off, obviously it takes time for the temp to get down to that level and the ceramic very very rearely comes on during the night
