Another question and it might be a silly one, can you run more than one ceramic off 1 stat like you can with mats. If the vivs are the same size and the bulbs are the same wattage?

.
Yes possibly, if as you say both set up are the same and the stat will take the wattage.But keep a very regular check on temps,as ceramics dont give off light and if one goes were the stat probe isthe other could get to roasting temps.
When i say theydont give off light it was in relation to seeing when the bulb has blown or not
