just to confirm!

Our Halogen range CANNOT be bought from a DIY shop under another title. These are hand selected for thier output and colour. some brands may do this, we do not.

The idea choice of light and heat provision is to use a good stat controlled heat source with a reflected T5 system alongside it as part of a well thought out photogradient. you can then use a M.V lamp like the D3 basking lamp as supplimentary lighting to provide heat and UVB in a concentrated zone quickly at the warmup parts of the day. i.e first thing in the A.M.

you can find out loads more about re-creating wild exposure and the light and shade method here

if you get stuck please let me know
