    Lightbulb Night time heating or 24/7 heating ideas


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Hey guys! I just had a quick question. What do you guys use for heating your Leo's tank at night or just 24/7? I have a UTH, but it only heats up the substrate, not the air temp. I use a bluesy bulb during the day, but I want to buy a heating source that I can keep on 24/7. I thought about CHEs, but they don't work with my fixture. Zoo Meds customer service rep. said that any CHE would melt the wires in my fixture. Do you huts use any special kind of bulb that heats the air temps but doesn't harm them and their eyes left disrupt them? PLEASE let me know. My Leo is in a 10 gallon tank, and his substrate (repricarpet) temp is fine with around 90 degrees, but the air temps during the day without the light on are like 72 degrees and at night, the air temp is below 68 degrees. It's too cold in my house and I need a way to better heat the air in his tank without a CHE. Let me know what you recommend. Thanks!

    A CHE is a good bet for heating the air.

    Others may have a different opinion, but I continue to feel that as long as there's a UTH with a hide above it, there's a place in the enclosure where the air temp will be decent. I don't worry about ambient temps. If it's really cold, the geckos will be in their warm hides and if it's really hot, they'll be on the other side of the enclosure in their humid or cool hides.
