Without a thermostat, it would get far too warm!

    There is however a short "break in period" after which the bulb functions at full efficiency. The key thing to remember here, is that to get enough ambient air heat you will need slate rocks or something similar underneath the lamp to reflect the heat and warm up the surrounding air. These DHP bulbs are not like Ceramic Heat emitters in the way they work heating the air only. The deep penetrating heat waves that a DHP produces are not as efficient at heating the surrounding air unless there is something dense underneath to store those waves and reflect it back as ambient heat.
    I ordered some slate cheese trays that should be coming in a few days they are 12x16 and 0.2 inches thick bought 2 to cover the warm side and for the rest i am going to use some black kitchen liner.

    I should add...I am actually tracking the temperature in 5 areas for the tank. With three being the most important.

    1. Digital Thermostat with humidity sensor on cool side.
    2. Exo Terra stick on dial thermostat in middle (came with tank)
    3. Digital thermostat for ambient air temp on warm side along with humidity sensor.
    4. Digital Thermostat that controls the under tank heat mat with probe placed inside his warm hide floor, on top of the tile.
    5. Digital thermostat that controls the DHP and the temp probe is placed on the slate rock just on the edge of the direct heat zone underneath the DHP bulb.

    Numbers 3-5 are naturally the most critical ones.

    So another question with a DHP do you need a UTH or can you just use the DHP for all the heating needs?

    I feed superworms occasionally. Younger, smaller sized ones would be fine for juvie geckos. Mine love them.
