    Lighting Help for Newbies (:

    For my 2x2x72 viv I use a 48" Repti-sun 10.0 for UV and 2-75W Incandescent bulbs on a dimmer to dial in heat on the basking spot. I keep the lights on a timer and I also have a 200W CHE on a Thermostatic controller to keep the Viv's minimum temperature at 74F.

    my viv project

    I found that using foam board and grout not only made my viv look better (in my opinion) it also helped insulate the viv making it cheaper and easier to heat and maintain the temps. I use 2 75W incandescents dimmed down to 75% to keep my 6' viv at 95F on the hot side (105F Basking spot) and 74F...

    Building a viv with no experience!

    Is this going to be a gift for someone? I would go with a 40 Gal Breeder so it's portable. You say you are leaving for Basic Training in July. What's the beardies PCS status at that point?

    Each CHE surface temp depends on Wattage. My 250W CHE heats up to 450F when fully powered. I bought a cheap metal shop lamp that matched the approximate shape of the CHE and cannibalized it for the aluminum heat shield and modified it to fit the fixture the CHE is plugged into. Because of the...

    Need non toxic sealant for stone tile.

    If your worried about dust, soak it and clean it before you install it. If your worried about absorption, I would leave the tile loose so you can just pull the tile out and soak it, clean it and put it back. I don't know that I would seal it. That's just my opinion, I could be wrong.

    My understanding is that 65 is the threshold for brumation/shut down. 74 seems to be a comfortable temp, when I kept it at 70 Nero seemed to take a lot longer to get moving in the morning and just didn't seem as active during the day. I bumped it up and he became more animated in general.
