Heat set up

Postby Lozza » Wed Jul 18, 2018 5:04 am

I’m in need of advice on my heating set up. I’m starting from scratch since moving. The enclosure is 46inch long and 19 high. It’s winter here atm and can fall to zero degrees cel at worst. So I need to make sure I get this right.
I will need a basking source and night time heat source. What are the best options ?
I have ordered the reptisun T5HO fitting with the 10.0 bulb for uvb.
I want to make sure my beardie is nice and snug.

Is it a wooden viv? If so I would go with a basking bulb for day and CHE for night.

That’s the weather here at the moment. Sorry I should have specified. I’m living with the bf’s parents at the moment and they don’t like to use the heating too much. When they do it’s set to 19c. I haven’t set the tank up yet as I’m in the process of buying all new stuff. So it’s hard to gauge. My beardie will be relocating to me in about 3 weeks time so I’m trying to order what I need so i can start testing it out before she gets here.
