    ditch the black light and hold off on the CHE, if your temps don't fall below 65 degrees than there is no need for one, i thought about doing the same then but i asked and thats what they have told me and with the price of the CHE i was glad i didn't get one. The basking bulb is ok depending on...

    id attach it with the sticky side down, use a rubber band or piece of two sided tape, im sure the surface temp is somewhat different but i cant say it would be more than a few degrees difference, are you able to use a rock or something with a platform shelf on it? this way your beardie can...

    how far down from your light is your basking spot? a 150 watt bulb should be way too much. I just got a new enclosure that is about 4ft long, 2 foot deep, and 2 1/2ft tall, using a 60 watt bulb my basking temp is just about to hit 115. so i will be dropping down to a 40 watt. you dont want the...

    display case

    Hi there, was wondering if it would be a good idea to switch out the 55 gallon aquarium for a 4foot display case? Found a glass front and top case that is 4 foot long, probably 2 to 2 1/2 foot deep and probably 3 foot high. Will give dino lots more room to move around and climb. It has sliding...

    light timers

    I just use a single GE light timer and a power strip. Plug the timer into the wall and then the strip into the timer, and now i have a six outlet light timer. Cheap and effective, have had no issues. Some of the more fancy timers may give you a little more control over the timer but on this one...

    FAke Rocks and Wall

    yea you have to seal it, can use many different products as long as they are non toxic, many people choose including myself to use mod podge, can easily apply first 4-5 coats by putting in a cheap spray bottle and adding water.

    fake platform and steps

    have two layers of non sanded grout applied and now im getting ready for the sealing part. if i go with modge podge can that be watered down or mixed with something to thin it out so its easier to apply in the cracks and crevices then do a thicker layer when i get all that taken care of
