    So I was wondering how I install a uvb bulb (the two ends of the controller) into a vivarium without breaking a vent, I'm not sure how to get them in the vivarium without breaking anything to fit the actual wires in itself (sorry if badly explained)

    can anyone recommend a good quality UV heat bulb for my boa? I read somewhere that Arcadia lights dont work off a thermostat (i have a microclimate stat) and that Exo Terra lights break after a few weeks. So I need a UV light that is reliable and works with a thermostat, many thanks.

    Hello. I have built a 6ft viv and have been using Exo-Terra Sun Glo 160W bulbs for a few years but recently they keep blowing even after having the electrics checked and using a surge/spike protector and to be honest they give out 4-5 months optimum before levels start fading!
