@Tom What type of overhead? A 65 watt flood bulb is equivalent to using a 100 watt basking light at a pet store to get the ambient temps you need? Depending on where the light is placed.Yes, they are safe in a ceramic dome. Yes they are safe. Every electiracle bulb that emits heat is a potential fire hazard. Securely hang the fixtures from over head, and there should be no fires. This also allows you to adjust the height up or down to get the correct basking temperature under it.
