i would personally use a dimmer stat instead of a pulse one if your keeping it on at night little more expensive but no matter what people say when yur bulb is flicking on and off all night it will bother your dragon even though some people will tell you they cannot see the infra red light but most experianced people on RFUK will tell you pulse stats cause stress and its better to be safe rather than sorry. =)

it's a ceramic not an infra red.
With a ceramic you can get away with pretty much any, dimmer, mat stat, pulse, temperature thermostat.
If it's just for night time i'd be tempted to go with a microclimate 100 mat stat for the cost side of things, although they probably won't need any night time heat.
