    So my new viv arrived today, going to put it together tonight etc. I don't currently have a night lamp or anything in my Viv because my room temp doesn't drop below 24/25 cel and my Beardie seems happy enough without. I know when the temp drops this will be different though and rather than put...

    Hi all, I'm growing a bit annoyed by the prorep bulbs I'm using in my vivs. I've had to replace between 5 and ten in the last couple of months, sometimes with the bulb stopping working after no more than a fortnight. Within the last months, I've needed two bulbs for my beardie, coming up to two...
