your looking for atleast 105 mate, 110 preferably just buy the 60 and the 100w see what works best.. I have a 150W and a 60W in mine to get to 105 due to having a cold house and my original basking spot is 3ft above the ground so the heat doesn't really reach.

I hear the reptiglow 10.0 doesn't perform that well, but it will be ok but once it blows get yourself a 12% Arcadia Livefood UK Ltd. from that site they are the best linear tube on the market I believe.

Yes arcadia 12% are alot better, ive got one but it seems a waste to get a new tube after he's probably ony used it for a few days. id change to arcadia after the first 6 months if i was him.

You have to think of things like if you haven't got the right equipment - if you don't get it, it hits you in the ass later when you got vet bills.

cheers.
