    I was wondering what brand recommendations for ceramic and infra red bulbs other posters have? I'm considering making the switch to ceramic for my boa constrictors (and eventually the rest of my snakes) I'm currently using exo-terra infrared basking bulbs and they last about two months

    Hi All, I posted here over a year ago and am a step closer to finally getting my corn snake. I had asked in the past about heat set up- but I just wanted to go over it again and get more opinions as I've (yet again) been fed more different opinions and feel like what I want to do is wrong. I...

    UVB BULBS? Hi everyone. Does anyone use the bulbs (not sure what they're called) that look like normal household energy saving bulbs? It used to be said that the uvb from them wasn't good, but have modern ones improved? Thanks :)

    I have been searching for the best UVB lightning solution for bearded dragon. My first option is mounting the tube fixture somewhere inside terrarium (Exo Terra 90x45x30cm), but I just don't know how to mount it up. I'm afraid that it could be dangerous to mount it inside terrarium because...

    I've got everything for my indoor tortoise table and I'm just wondering If it's okay, mainly the bulb. The table is 4'x2' with calcium substrate and an 80 watt Mercury vapour bulb on the opposite side of his sleeping area. My main question is if the bulb will be fine, my local petshop said it...

    Hey all. So, feeling like I'm waaaaay overcomplicating this issue, I thought I'd just ask how the rest of you do it :) Problem : Create a wider basking spot, so that my big lizard can get his whole self under it. Solution : Install a second heat-bulb. Question : One thermostat or two ...

    Hi, I'm just setting up a new tortoise table after getting lots of advise from different forums. I've got a 100w arcadia D3 bulb suspended above the table but I'm recording temps of about 39 degrees C with the prob at the approx height of were the top of the shell will be. At what height...

    So I was wondering how I install a uvb bulb (the two ends of the controller) into a vivarium without breaking a vent, I'm not sure how to get them in the vivarium without breaking anything to fit the actual wires in itself (sorry if badly explained)

    I am thinking about getting a few vivs for GTPs that are 18 inches high and was planning on using ceramic bulbs as the radiators are just so expensive and since these are not permanent homes it would be a bit of a waste. I am unsure on the best way to actually mount a ceramic bulb to the top of...

    I currently have a royal in a 4x2x2 vivarium with a 150w ceramic on a pulse. I've had this ceramic for years, but apart from the last 6 months, it's been in a 3x18x18. In the smaller viv it wasn't on as much and everything ran smoothly, but since fitting it to a larger viv it's working harder...

    Hi all, I've been reading Dramens bearded dragon care sheet which is fantastic and very helpful. I've just purchased my Viv thanks to the guys at online reptiles for a great deal. I have everything I need but one question which I can't seem to find a correct answer for is do I need a protective...
