Hey guys, I'm having some trouble distinguishing between ceramic heaters and Bulbs and lamps! They all look remotely the same and everyone that I find that is meant to be a heater also says lamp, Which is the same as a bulb surely? But I don't want a bulb! ahhhhhhhhh Confusion!!:lol2:

I'm not too sure what you mean by "when it says heater it also says lamp" but I use microclimate ahs heaters in my vivs and they work great. I also use ceramic bulbs to back them up, just incase. :)

I've been looking at ceramic set (the heater, guard, holder and cable) But they all Either say heat lamp, Which i'm assuming is a bulb or they just say ceramics, I'm just horribly confused :lol2: and From the picture, Bulbs and heaters look practically the same, So i'm Stumped:lol2:

Ceramics tend to have a flat bottom where as heat bulbs are like your conventional round bulb you find in your house

Hope this helps.

exactly they dont look anything alike its just the wording that is confusing as they are called ceramic bulbs by some they are still heaters its the word ceramic thats important not the word bulb.
