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...

    As per my previous post I'm building out an Ackie viv. For the basking spot I am going to use a 120W halogen, a Deep Heat and either a 14% Dragon lamp or a 12% Desert T5. I've been told Dragon lamps are best placed 40 to 50cm away, whilst the Desert T5 should be 30 to 40 cm away. Then I've...

    Hi All, I'm trying to get hold of a Par38 Halogen bulb for my bearded dragon and I'm quite confused on which one to go for. I see in most posts to go for a flood bulb but I keep finding most bulbs are stated as Par38 Halogen spotlights and have around a 25 degree angle. I even found a par38...

    I recently bought the following thermostat for my tortoise. Habistat DIGITAL Temperature Thermostat + Timer. It's an on/off thermostat. Is it ok to use this with a halogen spot lamp, and a ceramic heater? I don't want the bulbs blowing up on me, due to being switched on and off all the time. My...

    I'm thinking about giving them a go and was after some help with them. I have seen some that look like regular ES screw and was wondering if they will go in the ceramic holders I am using for my basking bulbs or do they require a different holder? Do they work with thermostats ok too? Cheers.

    Hi all. I've got a question regarding heating for my viv. Iv'e decided to go for a halogen basking spot for my viv which will house a trio of phelsuma sp. lizards. I was toying with infrared but since the geckos need visual light to stimulate basking and "show" them where to bask, I'll go with...
