    Ceramic heat emitter

    Hi Markw34, i have been hunting for the basking bulb you recommend, I have scoured the Internet and I have been to electrical wholesalers.

    Hi I have swapped my MVB for a che plus strip light so hopefully it won't dessicate my tort shell. Problem being I can't seem to get it up to temperature, I have a thermostat and can't get my head round why it won't heat up enough
