    Hi - I don't post often, but I wanted to call out this light that I saw buried in another thread, and which I purchased recently to replace a broken Kessil A380WE "sun" light. The light output from these is not as intense, but visually very similar to the Kessil. GLW® 30w 110v Outdoor Led...

    Hello, Does anyone have any experience with the Kessil LED's (Amazon Sun or Tuna Sun)? I am wondering if the Amazon Sun would work for an 18x18x24 Zoomed, I currently have an Exo Terra hood with two CFL's and want something less obtrusive above the Vivarium. The light would have to support...

    Hi. I've got a exo terra 3 lightbulb ramp (PT2227). The problem I have with them is they only have one light switch, and that there's no real way to plug in a light cycle unit on them. Has anyone ever hacked one of these ramps to either: - add another light switch? - add another output cord so...

    So the hardscaping is all done for my vivarium (first one!) and now here comes the lighting question. I was considering the 36" exo terra top, mounted in the middle of the tank and using Jungle Dawn 15w LED bulbs in the fixture. Anyone have any experience with either of these two? Or have any...

There are no animals in there yet, but ill have to move it away from my other viv so the light will bother my green tree frog. The only concern i have is of the temp going up to...

    Hi All, I'm planning on purchasing a ReptiTemp 500R as an emergency thermostat to turn off the lights if my viv gets too hot. Is anyone actually using one to do this? They're pretty cheap (around $25). I don't hear too much about them so I'm wondering if it wouldn't work well for this...
