Halogen bulbs.

Hey guys, trying to find something to use instead of my CHE to raise temps during the day on the cool side. The only bulbs I could find that weren't LED are these halogen bulbs. They're frosted which I have seen people recommended against through. Would this be worth trying or would it potentially hurt my dragon?

You can get get clear incandescent bulbs at lowes. If your lucky you can get 150 watt, here in vegas I've only found 200 watt bulbs. (They have a spot for lower wattage but they are always sold out). If you use a stand to hang the bulb you could probably use the higher wattage and be ok, put it in a wire cage instead of a dome so some of the heat escapes.

Unfortunately my Lowes here just recently got rid of anything that isn't LED, seems like most other stores have as well. I'll keep looking, probably going to have better luck online.

i feel so sad reading your about me 😢
Clapton is acclimating okay I think. He's quick as lightning so I'm not sure how much I should bring him out of his house yet. He's not at all interested in his salad though. I wonder if I should change what I'm giving him. Least he's eating his crickets.

Things to do:
Buy calcium powder
Material to raise surface for basking spot
Scenery decals for back of tank

Hi everyone, I have a question please. I have a thick branch I got from outside. It has been in freezing temperatures so I know that it is insect free. I took it off the ground and sat it up during a night we got down to 15 so the entire thing would freeze. Well tonight I put white vinegar all over it too cleanse it since it won't fit in my oven. Do I need to rinse with water tomorrow or is it fine left alone dried?
