Heat lamp blew no other bulbs

Postby allykanyce » Wed Oct 23, 2019 5:43 pm

My beardies heat lamp blew and I don’t have a back up light except for a heating pad. Nervous the heating pad will melt the tank or mess up the glass if I put it in there wrapped in a blanket. What can I do for him? Really worried about him keeping warm since he just had amputation surgery yesterday. I just got done redecorating his tank with a wool bed (similar to a dog bed), his hammock low to the ground and a new flooring.

Hi there,

You can use a normal household bulb. Many of us do. As long as it's not an led or a cfl, it should put off some heat.

Sad news it’s not the bulb, it’s the dome itself. Any ideas to keep him warm?

Oh that's odd, the fixtures dont typically go bad. Bummer.

If it's just for tonight he will be fine. I'd imagine it's his bed time soon? As long as your house doesnt get too cold at night, he will be fine for the night.

It's either that or a late night trip to a home improvement store to buy a fixture.

id suggest you get a hot water bottle. i have one so that whenever the power goes out i can just lay him ontop of it. get one with felt/any type of fabric around it because they can actually get really hot on the rubber itself plus my beardie loves soft things!
