Sorry for the questions
y'know light bulbs in your house... you screw them in to a ballast. That's what that bit's called. Get it?

The ballast is normally screwed to the top of the vivarium but with yur chosen housing you should be able to get one a hook in the top to hang the ballast from.

Yes that's a spot bulb and it's fine. This is a ballast for it:

as long as you only use the 40w bulb then you can use a mat thermostat
I no longer care for this signature
