    Looking for some advice regarding day and night temperature control. I've recently got a Royal Python who currently has a CHE which I manually change the temperature on in the morning and evenings for his day and night temps. My house currently drops to about 18 degrees at night, and I know...

    I've heard that CHE are probably the easiest to maintain as they can run 24/7 but lack natural (i forgot the word for it) of the sun, which apparently halogens and DHP's have. I was told halogens are the most natural and best for reptiles, but can only be used in the day as they emit light, and...

    Hi - this is really a question of electrical safety rather than one of husbandry. I am currently using a 75 watt CHE, which has been providing good temps in my 3 foot ball python viv. It's hooked up to a 100 watt HabiStat Mat-Stat, which is just a standard on/off thermostat. I understand that...

    I'm looking at upgrading my thermostats in the next few months. I'm currently using a couple of Pulse thermostats but I was looking at switching to digital ones with automatic temp raises and drops for day and night. One less job in the morning that way! Are there any disadvantages to using...

    Hello there! So, I'm new to the whole Heat Lamp thing, but, how would one stop a CHE from catching fire? I've been told to link it up to a Thermometer, but, me being a little bit thick at times, I don't know how I'd go about this! Haha. Also, the Terrerium for my Tokay will be on a Pine Wood...

    The heatmat in my 2 year old corn snakes viv has developed cold patches and i've been wondering about switching to heating his basking spot with a cermaic bulb instead. My house gets very cold at night so he'd need the heat on at night and since i dont like the red bulbs, i'd prefer a ceramic...

    Can the two be used together? I bought the clamp lamp as I needed a clamp holder for a CHE,not realizing it was the glow specific one (I should really read things properly!). So, even though it is designed to reflect light, can I use it simply for holding the CHE and directing its heat...

    Hiya, I have an african pygmy hedgehog who is 6 months old. I have a Snugglesafe heat pad to keep her warm but its not efficient. She's tried to hibernate once (properly but thankfully came round quickly) and is sometimes a bit sluggish/unresponsive so I need to heat her up to bring her round...

    Morning all, So I popped in the new 100W Mega-Ray into my new viv build yesterday to run it in. I've set it up to the recommended distance etc. I'm getting good UVB but it's not giving me the required heat at the basking spot so is there a CHE i can use that will give me a concentrated area of...
