Depends on your house / room you are going to keep it in
I started off with a 40w, then moved onto a 60w and finally settled on a 75w to give me the right temps.
On the other hand if i moved the viv to my spare room, i could probably get away with a 5w bulb, it's that warm in the room.
if you have a warm house, start with a 40w or 60w bulb.
