Yes you can use a reflector spot bulb from B&Q, Tesco etc - does exactly the same job and way cheaper. The wattage will depend on the temps required and the viv size. If your temps have been good until now then replace it with one that is the same wattage as the blown one. Your thermostat should be able to fine-tune the temps. Useful tip is to have a spare - they will usually, sods law, blow when the shops are shut.
