Hi,

I would use a heat mat with a normal red light bulb (about 1.50 for 2 from B&Q) and hook them both up to a dimming thermostat to get the correct temps. I think the red bulbs look quite nice and allows viewing at night (as mentioned they cant see red light) when they are likelt to be more active.

Hope this helps
