    Hi, I am new to posting but have learned a lot reading this forum. I have a question about ceramic bulbs and bulb fittings.

    Hi Guys, I've bought some new vivariums and wondered what the best placement is for ceramic heat emitters. I know you measure front to back and put it in the middle at one end, a reptile shop said about 4 inches in from one side and on a website it said about a quarter of the vivs length in...

    :blush: Would a ceramic screw into a normal fitting or do you need to buy one made specially for them? I recognise that this is probably in the wrong section, but it is snake related :Na_Na_Na_Na:

    Was just wondering peoples opinion on what would be best for my royal in a 3ft viv? I've always used mats in all my rubs and smaller vivs but would it be better to get a ceramic bulb for the bigger viv to keep temps up? As far as I understand they need belly heat in order to digest properly, how...
