I’ve been struggling to find the best heat lamps for Dova, all the beardie branded ones we get burn out really fast and i’ve heard you can use regular bright white lights and i was wondering what brands / bulbs you guys can recommend! thanks ❤️

I use the GE BR Halogens. A ot of others use the PR halogens. I've also had success with pretty much every other type of household bulb. As long as it produces the right amount of heat, it's good. Assuming it doesn't put off any funky colors such as red or blue etc.

Well luckily once you find what works, you usually don't have to deviate from that bulb :)
