Lighting and heating question

Postby CitizensOfTheWomb » Fri Nov 03, 2017 12:07 pm


I am planning on getting a northern BTS next year. In the meantime I am workifng on setting up the enclosure.
I was wondering if the light/heat fixture pictured would be sufficient. Also if anyone has advice on which bulbs to use for heating and lighting that would be great.

The basking spot will be 10 to 12 inches from the fixture.

Any advice/help is greatly appreciated!

All would depend on the size of the enclosure. I'd suggest getting a temp gun to check. Best 20 bucks I ever spent.
