I'm setting up a viv for a retic over the next few months and I'm looking in to using ceramic bulbs to heat but have a few questions as I haven't used them before.
Firstly the viv is 7' x 3' of floor space and 2' high and the room it is in is always kept between 22 and 24C. What wattage would...
I'm upgrading my 8 month old Burm to a 6x2x2 Pro Viv soon. My original plan was to use a 250W ceramic, (guarded of course), run through a new EVO stat and LED lighting via the second channel.
I've been wondering if any other options would be better - tubular heater...AHS and the like. I've...

Hi im currently setting up a wooden viv for a juvenile Carpet. As they are "semi" arboreal I plan to keep him in a 36"h x 21" x 22" for the first year whilst i build a suitably sized adult enclosure. I have been doing a substantial amount of research with regards to lighting and heat and notice...
This winter is set to be the longest, coldest, hardest winter we've had for a long time.
Usually over the winter my heat mats go back in for all of mine, but now that mine are going into a stack, and Rex is in his big viv I've decided to go for ceramics. They are in the only room of the house...
Will a 100watt do it or will I need to buy a 150watt? This is for a hog island boa and his current hotspot is 32-33oC.
The viv itself is 63(l)x19(d)x24(h)".
Also I seen some snake hides that were black and quite flat looking but now can't remember where I seen them. Does anyone know what I'm...
I need to buy a ceramic bulb for one of my vivs which is the best? Also the best fitting for it as well?
It is a 4 foot viv so I know I will need about 150w but where abouts should this be placed?
Will be getting a cage for it at the same time :)
Any help would be great thanks :D
I'm going to be switching my Royal over to ceramics, instead of a heatmat now that she's bulking up. I know I'll need a ceramic bulb holder, a new thermostat, and a guard . . But, with a guard being so close to the bulb, and made out of metal, will it not get hot enough to potentially burn her...
Just a quick question.
I have my baby carpet in one of those 30x30x45 Exo Terra vivariums,
I have him a exo terra dome for his light source, the vivarium has one of those poly background things and I had him on a 60w household bulb and it melted the poly background.
I want him on a...
I'll start by saying that the search function is refusing to work while I'm using my phone, so I'm sorry if there have been a million and one threads about this kind of thing.
In early october, I found myself rescuing a Royal. She was kept in an old converted fish tank that was too big (4x2x2)...
i use ceramic troughs in some of my vivs and blubs in others but my plan this year is to move them all over to troughs and i have being knocking up some home made guards for them to fit in. was going to order some sheet metal but now i have being cutting up sweet tins to do the job.
I have made some advice posts before hand but am going to get whichever choice i feel is more suitable today..SO some final advice would be appreciated.
I have blue bulb heating viv during day, previously had heat mat on the side of viv with polystyrene covering it (shop advice).
Problem is its...
After commenting on a few threads recently I thought i'd just start my own and share my methods in case they might help someone else out : victory:
Firstly, I do not use RUB's, so I can't comment on the set up of a RUB or other tub. I use wooden vivariums as my animals are in my front room and...

Hi everyone, ok, basically I am about to move my adult kingsnake into a larger vivarium. I bought the ceramics system, bulb, reflector etc and set it up fully with the correct temp. The problem is that I noticed that the reflector gets so hot that I can't touch it for more than 3 seconds. I have...
