    So a quick question i've seen people suggest a dimming thermostat for a DHP whats the difference between a dimming one and a basic on/off one.

    The dimming thermostat is said by Arcadia to be easier on the DHP lamp. They say using an on/off thermostat MAY result in a reduced life expectancy of the bulb. I myself however still use an on/off thermostat. The dimming thermostats are prohibitively expensive to procur from where I live. Hope that helps.

    I've never used a dimming thermostat. In fact, I've been wondering the very same thing. Here's a reliable and recent video published in 2018 by JTB Reptiles based in the UK.

    Sadly habistat doesnt make thermostats for use in the states.

    There are other brands of dimming (pulse proportional) thermostats available in the USA that would definitely work. Dimming thermostats are pretty pricey.


    JTB Reptiles asks: Want to purchase one for yourself?
    UK Amazon link - https://amzn.to/2U1wCeU
    ----> US Amazon link - https://amzn.to/38Es1Ve
    NOTE: The US version is not the branded HabiStat model of this thermostat. However, it looks to me like a drop-shipped version of the same thing and seems to have very similar attributes to the one available in the UK. I cannot guarantee that is is indeed the same thing without seeing it first-hand - if you want to get it, that's a risk you will have to take.

    Hmmm been a bit since i posted so time for an Ignatius update he turned 14 months old 2 days ago and is sitting around 8.5 inches long (a rough estimate cause i cant get him to sit still for a more accurate measurement) and he weighs 80 grams. I was thinking of getting another leo (soon i'll be a crazy leo dad) was looking at this girl on the morphmarket https://www.morphmarket.com/us/c/rep...-geckos/366180 the breeder is only an hour from my house so i wouldnt need to have her shipped.
