Hi, have bought a 2 x 18 x 18 viv to house a baby royal, need to know what size ceramic bulb i should buy, 150w???? Do I have to have a p.p thermostat or will a normal habistat therm do? Cant wait till all set up and look for a baby royal.

im guessing that its down to the fact that our house is cold in the winter as no central heating. i think the 100w bulb only got to around 83f in the 2ft viv

Wow - glad I put 'going by' IR heat - that's something I didn't know - is it that you need a higher wattage for ceramic then?

I was just thinking 'bulbs' - and guessing they were the same

Hi, Stumpy, you might want to ask the mods to move this thread to general keeping where it'll get more readings.

I'm no expert on ceramics but I think they are usually run with pp stats - there's a good sticky on stats on general keeping though which will give you more info. Going by IR bulb heat, I reckon 60/75w ought to be okay for that size viv.

Good luck with setting up and your new royal.
